By depositing your work in a repository and adding project information to the metadata, project information and related publications and data will autmatically become visible on the OpenAIRE portal.

When the research output is available in Open Access, users can access them directly through the portal.

Remember that by making at least one version of your work Open Access – even if it doesn’t have the publisher’s layout – has immense influence on the visibility of your work!

A majority of publishers allow you to deposit an Open Access version of your work in a repository, even if the journal is not Open Access! If unsure whether the deposited version can be made Open Access, the SHERPA/RoMEO website is a useful tool.
