Copernicus: First Open Access Publisher in OpenAIRE!

Updated on

altOpenAIRE encourages publishers to support authors in open access publishing and dissemination, alert them about the availability of publication funds, allow immediate deposition in open access repositories and – last but not least – to register their journals at the OpenAIRE website. This suitably places publishers within research infrastructures which in turn allowing the seamless integration of European and world-wide research. Copernicus and OpenAIRE have worked together to identify publications resulting from EC-funded projects. As a result, well over 400 publications have now been imported to the journals’ and OpenAIRE’s databases and will regularly be updated. Moreover, on submitting articles, authors can easily acknowledge EC-funding and will be alerted about the opportunity to use project funds for article processing charges.

“We are delighted to announce the integration of the first open access publisher into OpenAIRE. Renowned open access publishers such as Copernicus Publications offer a great service to authors and significantly contribute to the uptake of the European Commission’s Open Access Pilot” says Norbert Lossau, Scientific Coordinator of OpenAIRE, an initiative co-funded by the European Commission (EC).

“Making European research results highly visible is at the core of our mission and we do our best to support authors in achieving this through high-quality open access publishing”, adds Martin Rasmussen, Managing Director of Copernicus Publications.

For journals using Open Journal Systems (OJS) a plugin has already been released to become compliant with the OpenAIRE technical infrastructure, which enables OpenAIRE to harvest and present publications resulting from EC FP7 projects or European Research Council (ERC) grants. May 2012 was the OpenAIRE Compliance Month for journals, in which we gave special attention to the steps required for journals to become compliant with the OpenAIRE infrastructure, and to support and facilitate compliance with the Open Access policies of the EC and the ERC.
