Government Announces National Open Access Policy

Ireland’s National Principles for Open Access – announced by Minister Sean Sherlock at noon today! A national statement on Open Access policy for all publicly-funded research in Ireland has been agreed by all Irish research funding councils and research institutes. Appropriately the announcement is being made during International Open Access Week. The full text of the National Statement, along with a list of supporting organisations, is available here. Trinity College Dublin, a supporter of the policy, already has a compliant Open Access publications policy.
