The European Commission has launched Open Research Europe, a platform for scientific papers that is freely accessible to everyone.
Open Research Europe presents the results of research funded by Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe, the EU research and innovation programme for 2021-2027. Open to both researchers and the everyday person, the platform addresses some of the major difficulties often surrounding the publishing of scientific research including delays and barriers to the re-use of results and high costs.
Some 40+ scientific papers from a wide range of fields of research including engineering, mathematics, social sciences, arts, and humanities have already been submitted and are ready for consumption.
“We need to accelerate scientific discovery through more collaborative and open research practices. By helping researchers to publish in open access, Open Research Europe removes the barriers to knowledge flows and cultivates scientific debate,” comments Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth. “This is just the beginning. We will gradually build the reputation of the platform as the publishing venue of choice for the researchers of Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe, and ensure it becomes deeply embedded in the European Research Area.”
