Does the SNSF control fulfilment of the electronic publishing requirement?

In the context of output monitoring, you will be asked to indicate which of your publications relating to SNSF-funded research activity are accessible through Open Access, and to provide links to these. The SNSF is not concerned with creating a monitoring system, but rather with the opportunity to report progress in the transition to Open Access to an interested public. Promoting Open Access (faster and greater visibility for research data financed with public funds) is important to the SNSF. It decided to introduce mandatory provisions because the recommendation approach at other research funding institutions resulted in very few OA deposits. At the same time the SNSF has provisionally decided not to monitor compliance or set penalities for non-compliance with the provisions. Reporting for the costs of Open Access publication will be done in the scope of the financial reporting in line with the existing procedure for eligible costs.
