PASTEUR4OA pone a disposición de los organismos de investigación una guía para ayudarles a elaborar sus políticas en favor del Acceso Abierto. Se basa para ello en otras recomendaciones como las de la UNESCO, MedOANet y RECODE.
Open Access Policy Guidelines for Research Performing Organizations. Victoria Tsoukala, Marina Angelaki. PASTEUR4OA. 2015
“The present guidelines aim to assist in the development of efficient Open Access policies among Research Performing Organisations. They have been prepared by the National Documentation Centre and SPARC Europe as part of the work of the PASTEUR4OA project. They provide the context, the process and a model policy that will enable the institutions to devise and implement their own Open Access policy. The proposed policy draws heavily on the UNESCO Open Access policy development guidelines, the MedOANet guidelines for Open Access, PASTEUR4OA work on the efficiency of existing Open Access policies, and the RECODE Project policy recommendations for Open Access policies to research data. The proposed policy aims at aligning institutional policies with the 2012 Recommendation of the European Commission and the Horizon 2020 requirements. It follows current good practices in institutional and funder policies, as they emerged from PASTEUR4OA research on policy efficiency, suggesting and obligatory and non-waivable deposit in repositories as themost successful way leading to the growth of Open Access to scientific information”.
