What are my funding organization’s open access requirements?


Most research funding organizations, including NWO and the European Commission, require publications resulting from their grants to be published open access.

The SHERPA Juliet database provides information on funding organizations’ policies and their requirements on open access, publication and data archiving.

In September 2018, a group of European research funding bodies known as cOAlition S (which includes NWO and ZonMw) launched Plan S, an initiative which aims to achieve 100% open access publishing by 2021. According to Plan S, scholarly publications that result from research funded by grants from cOAlition S member organizations must be published via compliant open access journals or platforms, or made immediately available through open access repositories.
