ESRC Studentships – Open Access

The White Rose DTP is committed to ensuring the output from ESRC funded research is made publicly available. The Research Councils UK (RCUK) open access policy came into force on 1 April 2013. ESRC funded Doctoral Researchers are expected to comply with the RCUK open access policy and guidance.

You will be reimbursed for reasonable travel expenses upon presentation of original receipts/tickets (no photocopies or credit card receipts will be accepted) and completion of the relevant expense claim form/process via your Department/School.
