ERC grant recipient talks about Open Access

In a short film – made for Open Access week 2010 – Dr. Appy Sluijs talks about his experiences with Open Access. Appy Sluijs is a researcher at Utrecht University, and member of the Young Academy of the KNAW (Royal Dutch Academy of Sciences). He received a European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant for his project DINOPRO - From Protist to Proxy: Dinoflagellates as signal carriers for climate and carbon cycling during past and present extreme climate transitions.

For this project, Sluijs must make his publications, as well as his data, freely available online in accordance with the ERC Guidelines for Open Access. He believes that this is the only way to achieve transparency and reuse of science. In his opinion this is actually something researchers should want themselves, without having to be forced to do this by the ERC.

In the interview Appy Sluijs also introduces the journals of the European Geosciences Union, all of which are published Open Access, and use an open reviewing system. He believes in the importance of Open Access, particularly since his publications very often have local relevance.

"I think Open Access is a very good thing, because it provides the opportunity for everybody in the entire world to look at scientific publications for free."
