The European Open Science Cloud for Research

Leading European initiatives, EUDAT LIBER, OpenAIRE, EGI and GEANT share their joint vision for the European Open Science Cloud for Research which includes eight elements of success for a concrete contribution to the Digital Single Market.

The Open Science Cloud, part of the European Commission’s Digital Single Market Strategy, will empower research data sharing, data stewardship and data reuse in Europe for the benefit of innovation and growth. Today’s joint statement sets out the partners’ strategic vision for the Open Science Cloud’s organisation, sustainability and governance as a contribution towards the practical realisation of the EC’s vision.

OpenAIRE & @fosterscience Webinar Making your repository OpenAIRE compatible with OA H2020 requirements

What should I do if the publisher does not allow me to archive my article?

In a small amount of cases, the publisher does not allow any version of the work being made Open Access (this is seldom the case, check Sherpa RoMEO for publishers’ policies on self-archiving).

If the publisher doesn’t allow you to deposit your article in a repository, the EC Open Access policy requires the author to contact the publisher. You are requested to inform the publisher of the EC Open Access requirements, and ask for an exception to the publisher’s normal policy to enable you to meet those requirements. It is important to obtain this permission in writing. A Template letter (.doc) is available that can be used when writing to the publisher asking for an amendment to your publishing agreement. When writing to publishers, it is better to write to the editor or officer in charge of authors' rights if possible, rather than to a general publisher's email address for permissions for re-use of published material. It is important that the request be seen as coming from the author and is part of the publisher/author relationship.
