Deposit your ERC publication

ERC grants under Horizon 2020 require beneficiaries to provide open access to all peer-reviewed scientific publications related to results from the research funded under the grant. For ERC grants under FP7(Work Programmes 2012 and 2013), beneficiaries are required to immediately deposit and make their best effort to provide open access to all scientific publications related to results. Please consult the ERC OA requirements for full details. 

The ERC Scientific Council mentions the OAPEN Library as the recommended repository for monographs and book chapters and other long-text publications in its OA guidelines. If you are the author or publisher of a publication based on research funded by the ERC please use this form to deposit the monograph or book chapter for inclusion in the OAPEN Library.

Please note that this form must be completed by the author or the publisher of the work, or their representative.
