As a result, all these efforts:
  • Facilitated the compliance with funder requirements (acknowledgement of EU funding and Normas de Informação e Publicitação de Apoios para Beneficiários da FCT);
  • Increased the number of deposits in open access;
  • Increased dissemination and visibility of scientific production in a European e-Infrastructure; and
  • Facilitated evaluation of Research Units (by FCT, every five years).

ISCTE-IUL repository provides a useful information on open science management:
  • Reports;
  • Statistics at the macro level (Repository) and micro (projects);
  • Possibility of enriching the metadata of the ISCTE-IUL Repository;
  • Transparency in science.
