ERC supports library for open access books

On 2 February 2016, the European Research Council (ERC) and OAPEN Foundation announced their cooperation in furthering open access to academic books and book chapters. OAPEN will receive an ERC grant to develop a tailor-made deposit service for ERC grantees and their publishers.

The OAPEN library provides a platform for the full-text dissemination of open access books from all scientific areas, in particular in social sciences and humanities. As part of the ERC-funded project, OAPEN will provide guidance and support to ERC grantees and their publishers to comply with ERC open access requirements for books. It will aggregate and allow the deposit of open access monographs and book chapters based on ERC funded research, provide quality assurance and dissemination of deposited publications and ensure their digital preservation.
