If an author funded by RCUK chooses to publish in QJ but doesn't select and pay for OnlineOpen, the author will be able to self-archive the accepted version of the article after a 12 month embargo period (starting with first publication online), or after a 24 month embargo for authors funded by AHRC and ESRC.
