FP7 Post-Grant Open Access publishing funds pilot webinar

FP7 Post-Grant Open Access publishing funds pilot webinar

15/10/2015 - 11:00

The webinar will be led by Pablo de Castro, from LIBER, the coordinating institution for this FP7 Post-Grant OA Pilot, and will have two parts. The first part will address the following topics:

  • How the FP7 Post-Grant Open Access Pilot works;
  • How organizations can work with LIBER and OpenAIRE in order to support the Pilot implementation;
  • How to use the central service for collecting and processing funding requests for Open Access publishing fees developed by Athena Research Centre and the University of Athens. This system collects the FP7 project information and the publication metadata for every request together with the information about the payments. Requests are then approved or rejected according to the Pilot requirements. Based on the information collected in the system, reports can be produced on granted requests and payments by institution, publisher, project, country or discipline. The service, which requires previous registration, has been fitted with different roles, such as researcher, moderator, institutional library, publisher or project coordinator among others;
  • How to ensure that working procedures are appropriately aligned across institutions in different countries;
  • How to team up with LIBER for dissemination purposes.

The second part of the webinar will be a Q&A session where any questions about this FP7 Post Grant Open Access Pilot will be answered.
