Funding opportunities, news and guidance from RKE at Manchester Metropolitan University

Continuing to meet the challenges and opportunities of Open Access

Leave a comment

The Open Access agenda continues to represent a big challenge and an important opportunity for the University. Most major funders and some of the larger charitable trusts, already mandate that outputs from their funding must be made freely available and accessible.

In order to comply with OA, Manchester Met continues to proudly offer Symplectic Elements research management system. This allows our academic colleagues to record their scholarly output and upload the relevant files to the Institutional Repository, all from one easy to use system.

From November 9, all academic colleagues will get a Symplectic link on their Windows PC. To log in, just use your standard MMU ID and password.

RKE and Library Services have also been delighted to offer each Research Centre an interactive workshop on Open Access.
