Bodleian iSkills: Open Access Oxford - what's happening?

What is open access? What does it mean for researchers and research students at Oxford University? What should you do about it? How do you find out about your research council or funder’s requirements, and what your publisher will allow? Who pays what, to whom and when? What are the different ‘routes’ and charges, and how can you claim for an Article Processing Charge?
