5. Open Access to Scientific Publications and Research Data
The EDCTP2 programme is funded under the Horizon 2020 programme (H2020) and is committed to open access. Open access refers to the practice of providing online access to scientific information that is free of charge to the end-user and reusable (“Open Access (OA)”). This encompasses:
- Peer-reviewed scientific research articles (published in scholarly journals)
- Research data (data underlying publications, curated data and/or raw data).
