OpenAIRE provides help and open acces to reseachers all over the world. Providing Open Access to research, both research papers and (the underlying) datasets, is not only beneficial for the public, but also for the researchers: several studies indicate that openness increases citations. Openness also improves reproducibility of your research results – and it might introduce new and perhaps unexpected audiences toyour work.
In Horizon 2020, the EC request all projects to provide openaccess to all peer reviewed scientific publications related to project results. Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever. Horizon 2020 has the political backing of Europe’s leaders and the Members of the European Parliament. They agreed that research is an investment in our future.
OpenAIRE now offers a guide for researchers so they know how to comply with the EC Open Access Policy.
