Just add the details of your research into this PDF form (just copy and paste in the citation) and then send it to the following email address: email@example.com
Please remember to attach the Deposit Request and a copy of your Author's Accepted Manuscript (the copy after it has been peer reviewed but not the publisher's copy) thanks.
The library will check all the copyright permissions for the Author’s Accepted Manuscript and will apply an embargo accordingly, if required.
If there are any queries about the version uploaded or no files have been uploaded, the STORE team will contact you to discuss what is required for the next REF assessment and, if necessary, help to confirm the details with the publisher on your behalf.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any queries.
Staffordshire University now has an Open Access Mandate – this requires staff to make their published, peer-reviewed journal articles and conference papers open access, by self-archiving their final, peer-reviewed drafts in the institutional repository - STORE (Staffordshire Online Repository Environment).

|Staffordshire University recommends green open access|
Green open access:
Green OA involves making a version of the research paper available through a repository as an OA paper and publishing in a journal with no direct cost to the researcher; however the publisher is allowed to embargo the final version of the article to enable the publisher to recover costs through journal subscriptions.
Staffordshire University recommends that authors deposit the author-final copy (Post print) of their work in STORE (the University Open Access research repository) whenever possible. In order to see if and how a journal or publisher supports green open access, you can use JISC SHERPA tools listed below.
SHERPA is maintained by JISC and provides the first level of support for researchers and librarians trying to determine Open Access permissions - either with a view to hosting the article or for finding funding from Research bodies.
If Sherpa does not answer your copyright question please contact the Library Repository team at email@example.com
Article Processing Charge (APC): an APC is a fee paid to the publisher to make an article free at point of access. The cost of publication is moved from the reader via subscriptions to the author via the APC.
Creative Commons: Creative Commons is a nonprofit organisation that enables the sharing and use of creativity and knowledge through free legal tools. The preferred licence for research funders is the Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) licence.
Attribution CC-BY: you can share, copy, distribute, transmit, remix a work for commercial purposes as long as you attribute the work
Attribution CC-BY-NC: you can share, copy, distribute, transmit, remix a work for non-commercial purposes as long as you attribute the work.
Embargo period: a length of time that publishers can make authors wait before they are allowed to make their material open access. The length of embargo periods varies, embargoes of between 6 months and 24 months are common. Once any embargo period has elapsed, deposited material should be discoverable, and free to read and download. See SHERPA/RoMEO for publishers copyright and self archiving policies.
Finch Report: a working group was established and led by Janet Finch. The remit of the group was to develop a sustainable model for expanding access to the published research and its results in 2012. The report is widely known as the Finch Report.
Gold open access: involves paying the publisher through research funds allocated by a University or research institution. The payment, known as an Article Processing Charge (APC) covers overheads such as peer review and marketing. The benefit is immediate publication in an OA journal. To achieve OA compliance most funders require the use of the Creative Commons Attribution Licence (CC-BY).
Hybrid Journal: this refers to a journal where only some of the articles are open access.
