ERC’s Funding of arXiv Part of Larger Trend, Says arXiv Program 2013-09-26


"Oya Y. Rieger, associate university librarian at Cornell University and arXiv program director, comments on the European Research Council’s decision to help financially support arXiv - the online repository for pre-print papers operated by the Cornell University Library.  She says: 'The European Research Council's new support for arXiv is encouraging, and it's part of a trend. As institutions from all over the world come forward to support arXiv, they're walking the talk -- backing up their commitment to open access and its importance for research around the world. Finding such broad community support for arXiv from partners big and small shows that we're creating an economically sustainable model for high-value initiatives like arXiv, which has been an essential communication venue for scientists all around the world for almost 22 years.'”
