Open Access to research | EU Portal

Open Access to research | EU Portal | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

The librarians in the EU Central Library created this portal to users find freely accessible results of scholarly research on the Internet.

 

More content is being added with the help of the librarians of Directorate General Research and Innovation and Open Access experts of Directorate General Communications Networks, Content and Technology.

 

The portal presents a selection of Open Access search tools, gives examples of Open Access repositories, gathers the latest news on Open Access, and lists the latest Economics Papers by topic. There are also several linked portals including one for journal articles and research papers on education.

John Bostock's insight:

A useful bringing together of resources and links to help people locate and use open access research.

Digital literacy is crucial for being able to confidently and effectively use digital media for the purposes of work, learning and leisure. It consists of the ability to access digital media and ICT, to search, understand and critically evaluate different aspects of digital media and media contents, and to communicate effectively in a variety of contexts. Without basic digital literacy, it is difficult to fully participate in society. This issue of eLearning Papers provides new documentation on research and practice to further the European endeavor of closing the digital divide. 

John Bostock's insight:

EUROPA - PRESS RELEASES - Open access to research publications reaching 'tipping point'

EUROPA - PRESS RELEASES - Open access to research publications reaching 'tipping point' | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

European Commission - Press Release details page - European Commission Press release Brussels, 21 August 2013 The global shift towards making research findings available free of charge for readers—so-called 'open access'—was confirmed today in a study funded by the European Commission. This new research suggests that open access is reaching the tipping point, with around 50% of scientific papers published in 2011 now available for free. .

 

The Commission will make open access to scientific publications a general principle of Horizon 2020. As of 2014, all articles produced with funding from Horizon 2020 will have to be accessible:

articles will either immediately be made accessible online by the publisher (“gold” and “hybrid” open access) - up-front publication costs can be eligible for reimbursement by the European Commission; or

researchers will make their articles available through an open access repository no later than six months (12 months for articles in the fields of social sciences and humanities) after publication (“green” open access).
