Digital.CSIC fact sheets collection to comply Open Access mandates [03/11/2015]
Open Access is being favored by the OA mandates of funding agencies to compel researchers to make their research results available and free. The DIGITAL.CSIC Technical Office helps CSIC’s authors to comply with these mandates since 2011. Now we have created several fact sheets with instructions to make easily comprehensible the OA mandates and explain authors how to comply with them. Among these mandates are: Horizon2020 (the EU framework programme for research and innovation), the Spanish Science Law, the CAM law (Autonomous community of Madrid) and the Open Access URICI-CSIC Fund. Additionally, another fact sheet informs about how CSIC’s authors can comply with OA mandates through Digital.CSIC repository.
