GUARANTEE PUBLIC ACCESS TO PUBLICLY-FUNDED RESEARCH RESULTS SHORTLY AFTER PUBLICATION
Research funding agencies have a central role in determining researchers’ publishing practices. Following the lead of the NIH and other institutions, they should promote and support the archiving of publications in open repositories, after a (possibly domain-specific) time period to be discussed with publishers. This archiving could become a condition for funding.
The following actions could be taken at the European level:
(i) Establish a European policy mandating published articles arising from EC-funded research to be available after a given time period in open access archives, and
(ii) Explore with Member States and with European research and academic associations whether and how such policies and open repositories could be implemented.
