Commission research centre improves open access

The European Commission’s Joint Research Centre has pledged to ensure all publications by its staff are released under open-access conditions, in line with the rules for Horizon 2020.

According to the updated policy, all JRC-authored papers must be published under gold access conditions, or via the green route with an embargo period of no longer than 12 months. The Commission has previously set the same rules for all publications stemming from research funded by Horizon 2020.

Under the gold route of publication, the paper is made freely available by the journal from the date of publication. Under the green route, the published paper is released via an open-access repository, usually after an embargo period set by the journal.
