The Research Council is taking steps to ensure that the results of publicly funded research are made as openly accessible as possible for all interested users. Calls for proposals in 2020 will stipulate that articles based on projects funded by the Research Council are to be made immediately accessible.

Here you will find information on how to meet our requirements for open access publishing.

The Research Council’s Policy on Open Access to Research Data aims to ensure that research data are accessible to relevant users, on equal terms, and at the lowest possible cost. Projects that receive funding from the Research Council who manage data need to draw up a data management plan.

Here you will find guides to data management and what a data management plan should include.
