EUA: Towards Full Open Access in 2020 aims and recommendations for university leaders and National Rectors’ Conferences

European University Association, Towards Full Open Access in 2020: aims and recommendations for university leaders and National Rectors’ Conferences, Pages: 7

The European University Association (EUA) has published a series of aims and recommendations on open access, with the purpose of further assisting European universities and National Rectors’ Conferences (NRCs) in the transition towards a more open scholarly communication system. The publication of these recommendations occurs in tandem with the release of the report Open Access in European universities: results from the 2015/2016 EUA institutional survey, which tracks the progress of institutions in the implementation of policies and practices in the area of open access.

The publication: Towards Full Open Access in 2020: aims and recommendations for university leaders and National Rectors’ Conferences, outlines  a series of recommendations in different areas relevant to open access, including open access to research publications and research data management, institutional development of open access, the mobilisation of researchers, assessment systems, and negotiations of ‘big deals’ with publishers.
