Support towards the Europe PMC initiative – Contribution for 2013

Objective

The proposed action will support the European Research Council (ERC) in the implementation of its Open Access policy for projects funded in the Life Sciences domain. . The proposed project aims to fulfil the following four main objectives:

to enable ERC funded researchers to use Europe PMC as a repository for their manuscripts, providing easy accessibility and wide visibility;

to increase the visibility of the ERC as a funder of cutting-edge research by providing a clearly visible link between the publications emanating from ERC funded projects and the associated grants;

to raise awareness - among and beyond the community of ERC funded researchers - of the ERC's commitment to support Open Access of scientific publications;

to contribute to the effective dissemination of research results.

A grant of €90,000 is requested to support these activities.
