Page structure

To aid page navigation on other University websites, skip links are provided that enable users to move around our website pages more easily. Skip links are not currently available when navigating The OpenScience Laboratory, this does not meet section 2.4.1 [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] of the WCAG criteria. Development is in progress on implementing skip links across the website and we aim to make these available as soon as possible.

Most of our website pages use the correct HTML mark-up to convey the structure of the page. In some instances, pages will be missing the ‘H1’ heading level mark-up, this does not meet section 1.3.1 of the WCAG criteria. Multiple systems are required in order to build and produce our website pages, this results in a complex page hierarchy, however the hierarchy of the page will still be correct if no ‘H1’ heading level is present. Due to the complex nature of how our pages are produced, it is not suitable to try and implement a ‘H1’ heading level for pages where they are not present. This should not cause any or substantial problems for the majority of users, but if you find the site is not accessible to you for this reason, please use the feedback option provided within this statement to let us know.
