Research communication

Open access

KTU has adopted the Regulations on Open Access to Scientific Publications and Data. The document is fully aligned with the Guidelines on Open Access to Scientific Publications and Data (2016) by the Research Council of Lithuania, the Horizon 2020 Open Access Mandate and Open Research Data Pilot, and the Guidelines on Data Management in Horizon 2020. The Regulations on Open Access to Scientific Publications and Data defines the requirements for depositing research publications and data at KTU. This document seeks to improve dissemination of research results and exchange of scientific knowledge, the visibility and usage of research results.

Open access enables unrestricted, free of charge access to research publications in digital format.

The Open Access Centre is established at KTU Library where National Open Access Desk (NOAD) provides consultations, collects H2020 project outputs, and supports research data management; the Centre also is organizing  workshops on the topic.  Backing this vast outreach, is the OpenAIRE platform, the technical infrastructure that is vital for pulling together and interconnecting the large-scale collections of research outputs across Europe. KTU Library participates in OpenAIRE2020 project. The project will create workflows and services which will enable an inter-operable network of repositories (via the adoption of common guidelines), and easy upload into an all-purpose repository (via Zenodo).

Enquiries about the implementation of the Regulations on Open Access will be answered at KTU Library. Contact person: Ieva Cesevičiūtė, e-mail: ieva.ceseviciute@ktu.lt, telephone: +370 (37) 300 284.

OpenAIRE

OpenAIRE2020 project is large-scale initiative that aims to promote open scholarship and substantially improve the discoverability and reusability of research publications and data. 50 partners from all the EU countries are involved in OpenAIRE initiative, which brings together professionals from research libraries, open scholarship organizations, national e-Infrastructure and data experts, IT and legal researchers.

In order to achieve project goals, OpenAIRE platform was established. This platform serves as the technical infrastructure that is vital for pulling together and interconnecting the large-scale collections of research outputs across Europe. The project will create workflows and services on top of this valuable repository content, which will enable an interoperable network of repositories (via the adoption of common guidelines), and easy upload into an all-purpose repository (via Zenodo).
