peter.suber's bookmarks 2020-12-13
"The European University Association (EUA) agreed at its Council meeting on 23 October 2015 on the development of a roadmap to assist European universities in the transition to Open Access (OA). This initiative follows on from a recommendation made by EUA’s Expert Group on Science 2.0/Open Science.
The current roadmap focuses primarily on OA to research publications, as in the broader field of Open Science most progress has been accomplished in this area. It is intended as the first step in a series of initiatives that EUA and its Expert Group are developing to address the most pressing implications of Open Science, including, inter alia, OA to research data, copyright, data protection and text and data mining; new models of evaluation and quality assessment; digital literacy and awareness.
EUA looks forward to collaborating with all its partners and stakeholders in furthering the dialogue and addressing the opportunities, challenges and next steps concerning Open Access and, more broadly, Open Science. Building upon the European Commission’s Open Access policy (Horizon 2020) and the statements made by Commissioner Moedas and Dutch Secretary of State Dekker in October 2015, EUA also views the Dutch Presidency of the Council of the European Union as an excellent platform for the scientific community at large, policy makers and scientific publishers to work together on this crucial topic...."
