Project news

LIBER plays a crucial role in the Open Research Europe (ORE) project (a project led by F1000) which works towards the building of a new peer-reviewed Open Access publishing platform. The purpose of the publishing platform is to enable Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe beneficiaries to publish their research openly and at no cost.

The ORE project is funded by the European Commission and will run for four years, starting in 2020. In November 2020, author guidelines for submitting articles to the platform were published and the platform officially started accepting submissions. An official launch of the platform will take place in early 2021.

LIBER’S Role

LIBER’s role within the project is to spearhead efforts to engage research libraries and other stakeholders who could benefit from the platform. Our activities include the organisation of workshops and webinars to introduce the platform to the relevant stakeholders and provide training. We will also contribute to the project’s sustainability strategy and ensure that all project news reaches the right audiences within the Open Access landscape in Europe.

Moreover, the ORE project directly relates to LIBER’s 2018-2022 Strategy, in particular to our goal to ensure that Open Access is the predominant form of publishing.
