Open Access Week 2022

Open Access is key to EMBL’s Open Science Mission. We are pleased to take part again in the International Open Access Week.

This year we organized a series of online events to share practical guidance on how to make research more open using EuropePMC, to learn more about publishing at a new Open Access platform Open Research Europe, and EMBL’s Open Data projects that support ecological research and biodiversity conservation.


Oct 25, 11:00 CET How to make your research open with EuropePMC

In this webinar we will explain how researchers can make their research open using Europe PMC and cover the benefits of including publications and preprints in Europe PMC for authors and readers. We will provide guidance on open access policies of Europe PMC funders and demonstrate how to include research publications in Europe PMC and PubMed Central USA.

Let’s chat about Open genomic data in action, ensuring food security, and preserving biodiversity in a global context. We will learn more about new projects such as the Darwin Tree of Life Data Portal and FAIRplus.
