Mykolas Romeris University adopts an open access policy | EIFL
"Mykolas Romeris University, Lithuania, has been actively involved in the open access movement. In February-March 2013 they conducted workshops on innovative teaching, open access initiatives, European Commission's open access policy and recommendations regarding open access, OpenAIRE project, open access publishing, national open access repository eLABa, research evaluation indicators and altmetrics. And as a result of these workshops and other activities University's research and educational publications are open access. 'Mykolas Romeris University supports open access thereby realizing the third function of the University (in addition to teaching and research) – social responsibility to the society. Open access promotes international co-operation, researchers networking, new cross-disciplinary research, innovation, development, sharing of information and promotion of science', said Nijolė Liatukienė, Mykolas Romeris University Library Vice director. Mykolas Romeris University open access policy and open access institutional repository were adopted and launched in June 2013 to ensure open access to the scientific production of the University. The repository will contain scientific publications, books, conference papers, student final papers (graduate and undergraduate thesis) and other scientific output produced by Mykolas Romeris University staff. The University also provides open access to all their publications: e-books (currently the collection holds over 130 titles) and scholarly journals (currently nine titles are available here). This is the 39th open access mandate in EIFL’s network. Learn more here: www.eifl.net/oa-policy."
