Open Access Policy

All project-based awards and fellowships funded by the EPA Research Programme are required to ensure open access via Green methods, i.e. self-archiving / 'Green' open access where the author, or a representative, archives (deposits) the published article or the final peer-reviewed manuscript in an online repository before, at the same time as, or after publication. Some publishers request that open access be granted only after an embargo period has elapsed.

Our open access policy is aligned with that of Horizon 2020, click here to view the EU Fact Sheet: Open Access in Horizon 2020
