OpenAIRE: OpenEdition contents are compatible with H2020
OpenAIRE (Open Access Infrastructure for Research in Europe) is a project that aims to make Open Access to scholarly information a reality across Europe. In practice, this means implementing solutions that enable researchers to comply with the obligation to deposit their research results in an Open Access repository, as stipulated by the European Commission in 2012. OpenAIRE acts as both a coordinator of European Open Access actors and an aggregator of deposited articles.
Since September 2015, OpenEdition has been compatible with OpenAIRE’s data harvesting tool. Every book and article published in Open Access on OpenEdition is now indexed by OpenAIRE. This means that this content is now automatically recognised as being in Open Access. In concrete terms, this makes it very easy for researchers to comply with H2020 obligations by publishing their articles in an Open Access journal on Revues.org or by publishing their books under an Open Access licence with a publisher on OpenEdition Books. As a result, it should be noted that the publication costs are eligible to be included in research projects financed as part of H2020.
