Webinar Description

Open Access and Funder Requirements

To support the transition toward a more "open" future for the research community, many research funders have developed requirements to ensure that research publications made with acknowledgment of their funding are made freely accessible through Open Access.

Nonetheless, understanding the different requirements and the specific terms of a grant is certainly no cakewalk. To make sure that you, as a researcher, avoid the risk of running straight into a dead-end street as a result of compliance issues and eligibility confusion, we need all facts on the table!

Publisher Relations & Business Development Manager, Romy Beard, and Customer Care Specialist & Researcher, Laura Davidson are the hosts for this webinar. They'll be ready to dig into various aspects – from compliance and payment eligibility to licenses and Plan S. In other words; be ready for a 360 view of all you need to know about the interplay between Open Access and funder requirements.


What you’ll gain from this session: 

  • Fundamental insights into the interplay between Open Access and funder requirements
  • Insights into what compliance and payment eligibility mean 
  • Be able to navigate through the different licenses 
  • Learn about what Plan S is, and what the initiative covers 
  • Insights into the challenges for funders to get authors to comply 
  • Assistance as to where you can go for resources that can help you understand more about grants and funder requirements in relation to your publishing journey
