Research funders Open Access requirements
A large proportion of our research is funded by taxes. More and more research financers therefore demand to make results publicy accessible.
Several funding agencies require from researchers who receive funding that they publish open access. This can be done in three different ways: publication in "pure" open-access journals, self-archiving or publishing in a hybrid journal, meaning journals that offer an open access choice.
If you choose parallel publishing the article must be generally available in a searchable database within six to twelve months after publication. This can be it is more of the traditional publishers who resist demands by putting an embargo on the parallel published articles that extends beyond the financiers agree, ie 12 Month connects and longer.
