Partner InstitutionsPartners of the Research England Open Research Programme
The University open research webpage describes open research practices and available support.
There are public facing repositories for publications, research data,and thesis.
Open Research is underpinned by many policies including:
The Code of Good Practice in Research which incorporates open research.
The Policy for Intellectual Property and Rewarding Participation in Commercialisation facilitates sharing of outputs.
The Research Publication and Copyright Policy supports rights retention to authors accepted manuscripts.
We have an Open Research Coordination group and are slowly growing a network of open research champions and a generic discussion area for open research at Glasgow.
We very much hope that the UKRN train- the-trainer strand will help us take further steps in broadening our support for open research.
