3.3 Open Access

New rules are ensuring that open access plays a much larger part in the production and process of academic work.  This is a constantly changing process at present but it is likely to have a wide-reaching effect on how you go about managing your data.  In essence data management is likely to become more important to your research than ever before.  As requirements and best practise for open access are currently in a state of flux we suggest that you look at the Open access: an information resource for historians in the UK – for the latest information and advice.
