The EC to launch a new a tender for an open access publishing platform
The European Commission is committed to supporting beneficiaries in complying with open access requirements in Horizon 2020, as well as supporting open access publishing as the main mode of publishing research in the context of open science. To this end, the EC will soon launch a tender for an open access publishing platform, subsequent to a tendering procedure which led to a non-award in 2018. The intended result is an open access publishing platform where peer-reviewed articles and related pre-prints produced with the financial support of Horizon 2020 can be published efficiently and under high standards of quality.
