REF Deposit Requirement – Which Date?

Results of a quick poll to see if there was preference to stick with publication date or change to acceptance date.



Some interesting observations including:

  • Both acceptance and publication date can be unclear
  • It can be a long time from acceptance to publication date
  • Preference to retain act on acceptance message regardless on what HEFCE decide for absolute deposit deadline
  • AAM is available at point of acceptance but less easy to obtain later especially if publication comes some time later
  • Concern that decision on portability could affect how and when researchers act
