An articulate analysis to address and resolve the legal barriers that researchers encounter when they have to publish open scientific data and articles.

 

In order to implement the strategic lines identified in the conclusions of the European Council on the governance of the European Research Area (ERA), which set out the priorities and a policy agenda for the ERA for the period 2022-2024, the Commission published four studies on the development of copyright and data and digital legislation to foster the development of open science in Europe.

The studies, presented by experts during two workshops in June, are: 

  1. Study on EU copyright and related rights and access to and reuse of scientific publications, including open access - Exceptions and limitations, rights retention strategies and the secondary publication right 
  2. Study on EU copyright and related rights and access to and reuse of data 
  3. Study on the Open Data Directive, Data Governance and Data Act and their possible impact on research 
  4. Study on the Digital Services Act and Digital Markets Act and their possible impact on research 

The objectives of the studies are to identify barriers and challenges to access and reuse of publicly funded R&I results and of publications and data for scientific purposes, and to identify potential impacts on research, through an analysis of relevant provisions under EU copyright and data legislation and related regulatory frameworks, and of relevant institutional and national initiatives

The final goal is to propose legislative and non-legislative measures to improve the current EU copyright and data legislative and regulatory frameworks.
