CEU Supports Moving Towards Open Access Initiative

CEU supports the initiative of the League of European Research Universities (LERU) calling upon all universities, research institutes, research funders and individual researchers to sign and promote their petition to the European Commission saying that research funding should go to research, not to publishers. The petition calls on the Dutch EU Presidency to prevent publishers from being paid twice for the same content: first, by selling costly subscriptions; second, by charging for making articles available in Golden Open Access. Read the petition at http://www.leru.org/files/general/LERU%20Statement%20Moving%20Forwards%20on%20Open%20Access(1).pdf
