Magyar Tudomanyos Akademia (MTA) - Hungarian Academy of Sciences (23 Oct 2012)



Open Access Mandate of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (MTA)

Researchers and employees of the MTA - including researchers of the subsidized research units and Momentum research groups - should make their scientific publications Open Access. Open Access could be achieved by i.) self-archiving in institutional or discipline-based repositories, ii.) publishing them in Open Access journals or in hybrid journals offering paid Open Access. The Mandate is obligatory for all scientific publications submitted for publication after January 1st, 2013. Open Access for scientific publications submitted before 2013, or published already, is recommended (through repositories). The default repository is the REAL of the Library of the MTA, but discipline-based repositories could be used wherever available (e.g. arXiv, PubMed, etc.), and researchers of subsidized research units or Momentum research groups at Universities may use the local repository of the University. URLs of the Open Access versions of the publications should be entered to the Hungarian National Scientific Bibliography (MTMT) database. Embargo periods - if required by the publisher - could be accepted if no longer than one year (for articles). Corrected manuscripts (final versions accepted by the journals after peer review) could be archived. If the publisher does not accept any form of Open Access, publications should be archived in REAL, choosing a closed access option. For articles the option visible for "registered users only" should be applied, books should be visible for the "repository staff only", if the publisher does not allow Open Access deposit. Aspects of patentability could be taken into account. The Open Access does not need to be "libre", "gratis" OA is acceptable. Available research funds could be used for covering the costs of Open Access (processing charges or OA fees levied by hybrid journals).
