Although University of Leeds is the project lead, the findings will be relevant for University of Sheffield (as a Symplectic site) and for the University of York. University of York is rolling out the PURE Campus Research Information System later this year. The outcomes from RePosit will be immediately relevant for York; it is envisaged PURE will become the main locus of deposit for WRRO content deposited by York researchers. A connector between the PURE system and WRRO is currently under development.

Uploading your accepted manuscript to White Rose Research Online is supported by many publishers - the RoMEO service lists hundreds of publishers which allow the final peer reviewed manuscript of your work to be made openly available. Some have an embargo period, some, like the Royal Society, Elsevier and Springer, do not have an embargo period. Most publishers don't allow open posting of the final, as published, PDF of a work with the publisher formatting etc - though some do.

Of course, the White Rose Research Online system aims to hold research outputs beyond those to be submitted for the REF. Whatever HEFCE's response to the UUK suggestion, it's already possible for White Rose researchers to do what UUK recommends - at least, for a significant proportion of research outputs. And, as deposit into WRRO may well boost the impact of your research outputs, there's little to lose - but potentially much to gain - by depositing.
