Research support

Funding summary

Many research funders have policies in place to ensure that the results of the research they fund are openly available. All research outputs arising from externally funded research at the University must abide by their funders’ policies. 

The majority of research funders’ open access policies are available via the Sherpa Juliet database. You should check these policies before you apply for funding.

The Library does not receive a block grant from funders such as UKRI, Welcome or NIHR but we have included details of their policies below as we know many researchers in our community receive funding from them.
