Making Open Research Europe Future-Proof: Plans for a Sustainable and Robust Publishing Platform
With the approach of the one-year anniversary of Open Research Europe (ORE), the open access publishing platform launched by the European Commission, it is timely to review how the platform is going and look at how robust and future-proof it is. The platform provides all H2020 and Horizon Europe beneficiaries and their collaborators with an easy, high-quality platform to publish Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe funded research at no cost and in full compliance with the Commission’s open access policies.
The vision of ORE is to deliver a high quality, reliable, and efficient publishing venue for EU research and a sustainable venue where grantees can publish post-grant the results of their work while respecting their open access obligations. The European Commission’s ambition is for ORE to lead by example in operationalising open science principles within scientific publishing while contributing to transparency, cost-effectiveness, and exploring sustainable open access publishing business models.
What Will Be Covered
During this workshop, speakers will discuss how ORE has become a sustainable and robust publishing platform and how it will remain this way for the years to come. The discussion will be focused on the role(s) research libraries can play in supporting the long-term accessibility and preservation of ORE digital outputs, for example by integrating ORE into institutional repositories, and more broadly in supporting the take-up and sustainability of ORE within universities and other research institutions.
