Presentation: Hallgrímur Jónasson

Open Access and the Research Funds at Rannís

Research funding agencies have played an important role in the spread of open access policies around the world. A number of research funders have instituted requirements that publications supported by their grants be made available to readers without charge. However, not all research funding agencies have done so. This talk will discuss the current status of open access at Rannís, the Icelandic Center for Research, and what the likely future developments are.
