Open Access Publishing

Open access (OA) refers to the practice of providing online access to scientific information that is free of charge to the end-user and reusable. ‚Scientific‘ refers to all academic disciplines.
Why Open Acces to scientific peer-reviewed publications?

Open Access publication in Horizon 2020 is possible by means of so-called “Gold Open Access” and “Green Open Access” publication, respectively.

Gold Open Access

  • Articles published in open access mode
    (publishing costs borne by the authors, universities or institutes etc.)
  • e.g. New J. Phys., Optics Express, Nature Comm.
    Peer-reviewed, purely electronic journals

Green Open Access

  • Published articles or the final peer-reviewed manuscript are deposited in an online repository.
  • e.g. ArXiv.org

Both options of open access publication are possible. In order to promote the Gold Open Access route grants are awarded for publishing results of experiments supported from the trans-national access program of CALIPSOplus in gold open access journals.

CALIPSOplus Grant Application for Open Access Publication

In CALIPSOplus authors can apply for a grant to cover the fee for their open access publication in order to cure this problem and at the same time encourage users to open access publishing. 

Pre-requisite for Open Access funding is that the applicant received funding for trans-national access by CALIPSOplus.

Not eligible for this support scheme is the publishing in hybrid open-access journals. In these subscription-based journals open access is only provided to some individual articles; usually this requires the payment of a publication fee by the author of the specific article, complementing the revenue of the publisher resulting from the subscriptions (“double dipping”).
