What is the FNR doing to promote open access?

  1. Open Access Policy: The FNR’s Open Access Policy – which requires publications arising from research funded, or co-funded by the FNR, to be made available online for free reading and reuse as soon as possible – applies to projects (co)-funded by the FNR from 1 January 2017.

  2. FNR Open Access Fund: The programme provides financial support to cover article processing charges that may arise through the publication of peer-reviewed research results in Open Access.

  3. Helping shape policy: The FNR is an active member of the Science Europe Working Group on Open Access.
