Publication scheme

A publication scheme is a document which describes the information a public authority publishes, or intends to publish. Public authorities are defined in the Freedom of Information Act and include universities, further education colleges and sixth-form colleges.

In this context 'publish' means to make information available routinely. The scheme is not a list of the actual publications because this will change as new material is published or existing material revised. It is, however, the University’s commitment to make available the information described.
