Many funders of research both around the world and in Ireland have adopted open access policies to ensure that the results of publicly funded research are made freely available to the public. They require that publications arising from research which they have funded are made publicly accessible as soon as possible after publication. This can be achieved in 2 ways, either by self-archiving in open access repositories such as CORA or by publishing in open access journals.
Funders of research in the Irish environment with open access policies include
- Irish Research Council
- European Commission FP7 funded projects
- European Research Council
- Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine
The Sherpa Juliet database provides a summary of open access policies given by various research funders as part of their grant awards.
