    Abstract

    This document gives the ALT response to the current consultation on OA policy for the REF post 2014. The consultation document can be found at http://www.hefce.ac.uk/pubs/year/2013/201316/name,82765,en.html HEFCE had previously consulted on the wording of the consultation. Most of ALT’s suggestions have been taken on board. Overall our message is one of general approval for the direction and most of the detail. We suggest strongly however that any exceptions should be case by case rather than having percentage targets for each discipline/ set of disciplines. This would mean more work for the funders initially but should lead to a cleaner result faster. We also suggest that having large quantities of non-available work should have an effect on impact funds in a formulaic way.
