For research managers
Is this for you?
Whether you are a principal investigator, a project coordinator, a research institution manager, a national ministry policy maker/funder or an EC project officer, you should be aware of Open Access mandates and issues, how to implement them and how to monitor them.
Our main goal is to work with the EC (FP7 and Horizon 2020) to implement its scientific output OA mandates. In doing so, we continuously gather information on how to make OA a success, addressing awareness, legal and technical issues. We maintain a pan-European OA network which can support you in adhering to these policies.
How to benefit
Through our technical infrastructure, we are able to gather scientific output from various sources and link it to funding information (on the project level) and to the people/organizations affiliated. Based on this, and the application of processes for inferring links between main scholarly communication objects, we are able to produce statistics for the OA monitoring and indicators on the research output and its impact.
