Horizon 2020

Award holders must ensure that scientific peer reviewed publications can be read online, downloaded and printed and make every effort for it to be possible to copy, distribute, search, link, crawl and mine such publications.

Papers must be deposited in the University repository. This can be the author final version (final agreed text before the publisher marks this up with their logos etc). The content of the article is expected to be made freely available within 6 months for science and medicine topics and within 12 months for social sciences and humanities topics. The library will arrange this where it is allowable at no cost under publisher terms. Alternatively, project funds may be used to pay to make the article open access by publishing in an open access journal.  The library will advise on options when you contact them.

If you are taking part in the open access to research data pilot (check the list of H2020 schemes automatically participating in the pilot on H2020 open access guide) data must be deposited in a suitable research data repository. Actions participating in the pilot must draw up a 'data management plan (DMP)' within the first six months of the project implementation. This will include what data the action will generate, whether and how it will be made accessible and how it will be maintained and preserved. As far as possible, projects participating in the data pilot must take measures to enable third parties to access and use such data (free of charge). Projects going in to H2020 schemes which are participating in the pilot may 'opt-out' in certain circumstances. Conversely, projects being submitted under the parts of H2020 not automatically participating in the pilot may choose to 'opt-in'.

Under Horizon 2020, all costs relating to making publications and data open access fees are eligible costs that can be charged against the project.

European Research Council

The European Research Council requires electronic copies of any research papers and books that are supported in whole, or in part, by ERC funding to be made publicly available as soon as possible, and no later than six months after the official publication date of the original article.

It is essential that primary data, as well as data-related products such as computer codes, is also made available.

The costs of open access fees may be charged to the ERC grant if incurred during the project’s duration even if it was not calculated in the original budget.

There is no obligation on ERC projects to participate in the Open Research Data pilot. However beneficiaries may choose to 'opt-in' to the data pilot, with the exception of ERC Proof of Concept Grants.

Historically, some authors have received updates from ERC stating that they are making these conditions desirable rather mandatory for their particular grant. Please check your terms and conditions and funder correspondence.

FP7

The European Commission are running a pilot open access fund for new publications from completed FP7 projects with an end date of 1st January 2013 or later. The library can access a pot of money for open access to peer-reviewed articles, monographs, book chapters and conference proceedings that acknowledge FP7 projects that University of Glasgow staff or students have been involved in. The funding is only available for fully open access titles and the threshold including vat is 2000 euros (6000 euros for monographs). No page or colour charges can be charged to the fund.

Please email research-openaccess@glasgow.ac.uk if you have a publication accepted or in the pipeline and confirm:

  • The FP7 acknowledgement that you have included in the publication – this must specify the award number*
  • The name of the journal or publication
  • The title of the article, conference proceeding, book or book chapter
  • That you have included a statement where applicable on how underlying research materials, such as research data, samples or models, can be accessed.

Ideally provide a pdf version of the agreed final text confirming if it is agreed final text or if some revisions are still expected. If you do this we can check some of the above details without you needing to list them in the cover email.

*All publications or any other dissemination relating to foreground shall include the following statement to indicate that said foreground was generated with the assistance of financial support from the Community.

The research leading to these results has received funding from the [European Community's] [European Atomic Energy Community's] Seventh Framework

Programme ([FP7/2007-2013][FP7/2007-2011]) under grant agreement n° [xxxxxx].

Note that EU are only allowing funds for 3 publications per project so we may need to check with project leads to coordinate what is funded.There are quite a number of criteria. Please email us and the library will take on as much of the admin as possible. For further details please read the links below.

FP7 Marie Curie and H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA)

In line with Horizon 2020's open access policy award holders must ensure that peer-reviewed scientific publications resulting from EU funding are deposited in the University repository and made freely available. A repository link for each publication must be provided in project reports.

There is no obligation on projects to participate in the Open Research Data pilot. However, as noted above, beneficiaries may choose to 'opt-in' to the data pilot, with the exception of MSCA COFUND Grants.
