Europe’s Open Access Research Depository

The European Commission has launched an open access pilot in which grant recipients in seven areas (energy, environment, health, parts of information and communication technologies, research infrastructures, science in society, and social sciences and humanities) will be required to deposit peer reviewed research articles or final manuscripts resulting from their projects into an online repository, and ensure open access to these articles within either six or twelve months after publication. The official website for this pilot was launched today, so be sure to check it out for further information.
