Open Research Europe (ORE) is the new open access publishing platform launched by the European Commission. EC grantees are invited to publish original results stemming from Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe projects in ORE, while the publishing cost will be fully covered by the EC.

ORE offers an open and fully transparent publishing workflow, from pre-print sharing and high-quality open peer-review, to enabling supporting data and materials citation for greater reproducibility and reuse. This new platform will be presented on March 12th 2021 at 2.00 pm by Michael Markie, F1000 Publishing Director responsible for ORE implementation. The webinar is organized by the Italian ICDI Competence Center on Open Science, EOSC and FAIR data.

The ORE platform will host original results stemming from research projects funded by Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe with no costs for authors. The goal is to further support the transition to an open and sustainable scholarly communication model. In fact, ORE is fully compliant with EC Open Access and Open Science mandates and responds to the need of tools supporting Open Science best practices.
ORE will publish scientific contents in six domains: Natural Sciences, Engineering and Technology, Medical and Health Sciences, Agricultural and Veterinary Sciences, Social Sciences, Humanities and the Arts. For each domain, different forms of publications will be possible, from research articles to brief reports, from data papers to essays.
