m) Do publications deposited on ResearchGate, Academia or my own personal website satisfy the SNSF's Open Access requirements ("Green Road")?

Making a publication available on platforms such as ResearchGate or Academia does not meet the SNSF Open Access criteria because the compulsory registration required inhibits Open Access and introduces an economic model based on the sale of users' data, which the SNSF does not support. It should also be stressed that making a publication accessible on the author's own website does not meet the SNSF Open Access criteria because long-term access is not guaranteed.
