[Google tranl.] The University's policy for open access to publications and research data.
Open Access is a movement born in the 90s of the last century within the academic world with the aim of promoting the dissemination of research publications in a free and open form. Open Science is the European strategy to extend the principle of access to research data and practices.
Open Science aims to enhance the international dissemination of scientific information, to reduce the rate of duplication of scientific studies, to strengthen interdisciplinary research, the transfer of knowledge to businesses and transparency towards citizens, to make more efficient the use of scientific contributions for teaching purposes, to ensure the preservation of scientific production over time and to promote the proper attribution of intellectual paternity.
The University policy, approved on 19 December 2017, implements the provisions of the University's Code of Ethics and Conduct and promotes the implementation of the principle of open access as defined in the Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities and the Messina Declaration, both signed by the University of Bologna. It also responds to the Recommendations of the European Commission on access to and preservation of scientific information and to art. 4 of Law no. 112 of 7 October 2013, which states that the results of scientific research funded in whole or in large part from public funds must be available to the community.
The University aims to achieve open access through the Research Institutional Archive (Green Road), as well as through the editorial services of the digital library, the recognition of incentives and the negotiation of concessional conditions for the publication in open access (Gold Road).
