Commentary on the FAIRsharing Data Repository Selection Proposal
Released in partnership with CESAER and the European University Association (EUA) this joint statement outlines how all publishers must fully respect researchers’ rights by providing clarity and transparency on Open Access.
LIBER Europe, CESAER, EUA, LERU, and Science Europe — who together represent hundreds of universities, libraries, and research funding and performing organisations — call on Members of the European Parliament to modify the current EU copyright reform proposal. Amendments in five main areas of the proposal are critical if Europe wants to be at the forefront of a prosperous and growing digital society. Europe must take the lead to develop legislative frameworks that allow fair dissemination, access to, sharing and use of available knowledge.
