Open Access: What You Need to Consider Before Publishing

Before deciding to make your research results of your investigation public and visible, you should pay close attention to several issues regarding open access publications:

  • Always check the journal’s editorial policy regarding open publication. We Recommend the following resources:
  • If the journal does not allow you to self-archive some version of the article (author version and publisher version) or you have questions regarding copyright, you can review the agreements with the publisher and even include addendum in the contracts. PoliScience has issued recommendations that include examples of model contracts or addendums.
  • Never publish in calls from Predatory Publishers, publishers who base their business model on publishing articles without offering minimum guarantees. You can consult an updated list.
  • Horizon 2020 has a pilot program for depositing research data in Open Access, Open Research Data Pilot, Open Research Data Pilot.
