Hi Jonathan,
If you've got the latest release installed, then yes.
This is the block that does the work: https://github.com/eprintsug/hefce_oa/blob/v1.1.0/lib/cfg.d/hefce_oa_tests.pl#L97-L159

The note on line 149 might be useful to ponder too!

Subject: [EP-tech] REFCC plugin functionality question

Hi all,

Quick question on the REFCC plugin. In short I've been told the rules for this year (2016/2017) apparently require publications to have been deposited within 3 months of Publication to be eligible (note: I'm discounting embargoes and other complications for the moment). From next year (2017/2018) this changes to require that publications have been deposited within 3 months of Acceptance to be eligible.

Can someone confirm that the plugin is definitively checking the 3 month rule against the publication date this year and not the acceptance date?

Many thanks if someone can advise on this.
