The European Commission stance on Open Access to scientific information
(Posted March 28th, 2013)
The EC defines the development of an economy based on knowledge and innovation as a priority for the European Area Research.
As you can read into the Commission Recommendations of 17 July 2012 and as recalled by the Minister Profumo one month ago, Open access to scientific research data improves data quality, decreases the need for duplication of research, speeds up scientific progress and helps to combat scientific fraud.
The document states “… Open access is a key feature of Member States’ policies for responsible research and innovation by making the results of research available to all and by facilitating societal engagement”. Moreover: “… Businesses will also benefit from wider access to scientific research results. Small and medium-sized enterprises in particular will improve their capacity to innovate” and it ends with this declaration: “the Internet has fundamentally changed the world of science and research. It should be recommended to Member States to adapt and develop their policies on open access to scientific publications”.
The Recommendations also underline the important role of e-infrastructures for disseminating the scientific information and we, at PAGEPress, would like to agree with these suggestions and confirm the fundamental contribution of professional publishers in this context. (Posted March 28th, 2013)

Open Access to scientific information
(Posted March 13th, 2013)
The Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research (MIUR) – in accordance with the latest conclusions drawn by the Council of European Union – supports Open Access to scientific publications. As indicated during the February meeting in Brussels, through Open access the Council promotes the idea of developing broader and more rapid access to scientific publications in order to help researchers and businesses to build on the results of publicly founded research. The European Council is fully convinced that Open Access will contribute to booste Europe’s Innovation capacity, help to face societal challenges and provide citizens with quicker access to scientific discoveries. The Italian MIUR welcomed the Council’s view that Open Access to scientific publication should be a general principle of the future Horizon 2020 (the seven-year research program). In facts, some days ago during an interview to “la Stampa” the Italian Education Minister Francesco Profumo referred to himself as an Open Access upholder, striving for the optimal circulation, free access to a transfer of scientific knowledge as one of the most important objectives for the establishment of a genuine European Research Area (ERA).
