The European Commission has officially launched Open Research Europe (ORE), the open access publishing platform for scientific articles that will present the results of research funded by Horizon 2020, and soon Horizon Europe.

The initial articles that have been submitted have already been published. ORE upholds the principles of open science by publishing articles immediately, followed by transparent and open peer review with the inclusion of all data and supporting materials. The names of the reviewers will be available, as well as their reviews.

Article-level metrics will continuously track the social impact of publications. Ultimately, the platform will give all researchers and citizens alike free access to the latest scientific discoveries.

Horizon 2020 beneficiaries can publish research articles. The platform accepts articles addressing all fields of science, including natural sciences, engineering and technology, medical and health sciences, agricultural and veterinary sciences, social sciences, humanities and arts.

The European Commission stresses that Open Research Europe is not a repository for articles that have already been published elsewhere. Research submissions must be original, and not have been sent for publication to any other place. In addition, they must originate from a Horizon 2020 Grant in which at least one of the authors is involved.

Publication in Open Research Europe is an optional service. The European Commission covers all costs upfront, there is no author fee, which means there is also no administrative burden. In addition, there is a guarantee of automatic compliance with Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe open access requirements.

The institution’s platform provides useful advice and guidance, including how to prepare articles and data for submission. https://open-research-europe.ec.europa.eu/about
