Open access and open research data in Horizon 2020

The European Commission has published its guidelines for open access to publications and research data under the new research framework programme Horizon 2020.

Horizon 2020 (external link) adopts a comprehensive policy towards open access to research results. The EU now requires funding recipients to publish their peer-reviewed research results open access and calls for the primary data that the publications are based upon to be made accessible.

This also affects EU-funded projects conducted in Switzerland. We have therefore updated the information on the European Commission's open-access requirements for you on our website funding institutions.

The E-Publishing dnd Digital Curation Offices at ETH-Bibliothek will gladly offer you help and support in realising the publication duties imposed by the EU.
