Science Europe recommends disclosing publication fees
The Working Group on Open Access to Research Publications of Science Europe has published a recommendation in which it calls for disclosing publication fees, on the basis of Science Europe's commitment to playing a role in accomplishing the transition to Open Access in an efficient and sustainable way. The recommendation encourages scientific institutions to disclose payments of Open Access publication fees by participating in the "Open APC Initiative", in order to help create a more transparent cost structure in the Open Access publication market and stimulate competition.
Science Europe is an association of European Research Funding Organisations (RFO) and Research Performing Organisations (RPO), based in Brussels.
