The first articles on the new publishing platform Open Research Europe will be published in early 2021. Open Research Europe is an Open Access publishing platform offering fast publication and open peer review exclusively for research conducted by Horizon 2020 beneficiaries.
Why this new platform?
The Horizon 2020 vision is to drive innovation and economic growth across the EU, benefiting health and wellbeing across the globe. By giving researchers the option to publish their work as open access in multiple formats, from standard research articles to data notes, from new insights to confirmatory or negative results, the European Commission aims to remove the barriers to scientific discovery, facilitating progress towards securing Europe’s global competitiveness in innovation.
What is it?
The European Commission will provide a high-quality, reliable open research publishing option that allows researchers to publish quickly, at no cost, and in compliance with the Horizon 2020 open access mandate. The platform combines the benefits of pre-printing with the benefits of open peer review, while retaining all the services essential for publishing, registering, certifying, disseminating, and preserving content for use and re-use.
The platform is now ready to accept submissions, and will be launching early 2021.
