Summary:

"The Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia (FDRE) Ministry of Science and Higher Education is committed to supporting research of high quality and to ensuring that public research spending will lead to a maximum economic and social return. The FDRE Ministry of Science and Higher Education supports the principles of OPENNESS to research outputs and processes as integral to research excellence as well as the sharing and creation of new knowledge.

The policy applies to all research outputs authored/created, or co-authored/co-created by employees of Ethiopian universities: this includes research outputs of graduate students and PhD students. It complements and does not override the Open Access requirements of research funders as they apply to their funded research.
 
Researchers and research students have to make themselves visible and findable, using persistent identifiers such as ORCID IDs, and their outputs available on an Open Access basis, if their research resulting entirely or partly from public funding.
 
For this purpose, the FDRE Ministry of Science and Higher Education has defined the following policy which must be observed by all recipients of public research funding as of June 17, 2019...."
