“Christmas is over. Research funding should go to research, not to publishers!" Moving Forwards on Open Access LERU Statement for the 2016 Dutch EU Presidency"
Christmas is over, says the League of European Research Universities (LERU), and calls upon the European Commission (EC) and the forthcoming Dutch EU Presidency to work with all stakeholders and bodies involved, to bring sensible solutions to the fore. In the era of Open Science, Open Access to publications is one of the cornerstones of the new research paradigm and business models must support this transition. It should be one of the principal objectives of Commissioner Carlos Moedas and the Dutch EU Presidency (January-June 2016) to ensure that this transition happens. Further developing the EU´s leadership in research and innovation largely depends on it.
