The Institut Pasteur Charter for Open Access to Publications
Publications based on research funded by the EU's H2020 program must be made openly accessible online, free of charge, AND also submitted to an open archive. (Guidelines to the Rules on Open Access to Scientific Publications and Open Access to Research Data in Horizon 2020)
Plan S: new requirements from research funders
In September 2018, a coalition of funders, cOAlition S, joined forces to mandate open access to publications from research funded with their own money.
Its general principles are grouped in Plan S, which requires immediate open access to scientific publications (from 2021).
To allow the reuse of these publications, they must be :
- under a Creative Commons open license (CC-BY);
- in Open Access journals, or on Open Access platforms, or in open archives without embargo.
In France, the French National Research Agency (ANR), which is part of the cOAlition S, published its Work Programme 2019. In the section "Open Science: Scientific publications and research data", the ANR requires that "that the full texts of all publications resulting from the projects it funds should be posted in the open archives, directly in HAL or via a local institutional archive".
