Research funders requirements
For employees at the University of Oslo there are two main research financers with requirements pertaining Open Access. The Research Council of Norway and the EU require that publications which report research results which have been funded by them, must be published in open channels.
The Research Council of Norway
If your project is funded by the Research Council of Noway, the following regulations on Open Access apply:
- All peer reviewed scientific articles, which are based on research partially of fully funded by the Research Council of Norway, must be archived in an institutional or disciplinary archive like DUO at UiO. Submit the article through CRIStin.
- Breach of these conditions can lead to funding being withheld according to The RCN's Principles for Open Access to Scientific Publications.
- More information on the guidelines at the NFR website.
- See UiO's information on NRF applications.
If your project is funded by the EU, the following regulations on Open Access apply:
- A machine readable copy of a published article, or the latest peer reviewed manuscript must be archived in a research archive like DUO at UiO.
- A version of the article must be made accessible:
- either through publishing in an Open Access journal or in a Hybrid journal. The article should be openly accessible immediately after publishing.
- or by self archiving the article in an open archive, i.e. the DUO service at UiO. Self archived articles should be openly accessible within 6 months after publishing for STM publications, and within 12 months for SHH publications.
- Bibliographic data must be available to ensure that a publication is searchable and retrievable.
