E-publishing and open access
Several research funders have adopted open access requirements (i.e. free online access) for research publications. What does this mean for researchers?
Research funds granted by the National Institutes of Health in 2009 are subject to the open access requirement. Grants given by the Swedish Research Council in 2010 are also required to be published open access.
To help researchers at KI to fulfill the funders' demands, a support function based at the KI university library will guide and answer questions on the subject.
KI has established an open archive where reserchers can deposit full-text copies of their published articles.
At the present point in time this only applies to publications where the financiers require open access.
Want to learn more about Open Access and how this affects you as a researcher?
We at the Publishing Support function are happy to come to your department and talk about Open Access (OA), research funders' demands for OA and how to fulfill them. We can make a short presentation on one of your regular meetings or arrange a more in-depth seminar that will give you the opportunity to ask questions and discuss OA in detail.
