QJ is compliant with RCUK funding requirements for Open Access Publication

QJ offers the OnlineOpen open access option to authors.

Authors funded by RCUK therefore have the opportunity to publish their articles under a Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) license which supports authors in complying with RCUK requirements.

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.
