Science Europe publishes declaration of principles on Open Access

Science Europe published a declaration of principles entitled Principles for the Transition to Open Access to Research Publications.

Science Europe (external link), an umbrella organisation of the most important research and funding organisations in Europe, has published a declaration of principles entitled Principles for the Transition to Open Access to Research Publications (external link).

For the first time, it lays down the joint guidelines that should govern the transition to an open-access-based publication model. The funding organisations, including the Swiss National Science Foundation, endorse both publications in open-access journals and second publications on document servers. However, they are explicitly against supporting so-called hybrid publication models (external link).
