How to make sure the journal you choose will comply with your funder requirements…and so make sure they pay!

A vitally important question, this one. The Wellcome Trust (who last year gave us £208,038 for open access publishing charges) have announced that they will not be paying charges for publications which fail to meet their requirements.


has done the legwork so you don’t have to.



Just pop in the journal

And pop in your funder

Check compliance

And off you go

Imperial College have done a fantastic post on how to use this. No point in reinventing the wheel – pop over and have a read.

How does it work?

Sherpa Fact uses information on Sherpa-RoMEO (on publishers’ and journals’ OA policies), Sherpa-Juliet (on funders’ OA policies) and the Directory of OA Journals to work it out, and they’re over 98% accurate.

Less of your time reading the small print, more time writing your paper. Just as it should be.
