“HEAL-Link, the consortium of Greek academic libraries, is committed to bring about the much-needed change in the publication of the research outputs of Greek institutions to match the contemporary scholarly communication standards for openness.
As part of its mission to support Open Science, HEAL-Link has launched the HEAL1000 Gateway on the highly acclaimed platform of F1000Research, to provide a publication venue for its members in a form that implements Open Access, Open Peer Review and Open Data.
HEAL-Link will centrally pay the publication fee (Article Processing Charge) to F1000Research for any articles where the corresponding author is based at a HEAL-Link member institution. Only corresponding authors affiliated with an institution-member of HEAL-Link are regarded as eligible to publish free of charge in the HEAL1000 Gateway. The authors must use their institutional email address and clearly state their institutional affiliation in the submission form. A full list of participating member institutions can be found here….”
“HEAL-Link has partnered with open research publisher F1000 to launch HEAL1000, an open research publishing hub in Greece for all researchers affiliated with its 43 member institutions.
HEAL1000 is hosted on F1000’s own pioneering open research publishing platform, F1000Research, and enables all HEAL-Link affiliated authors the opportunity to rapidly share any sound research output, thereby accelerating the dissemination of knowledge and the pace of new discoveries. HEAL-Link joins other prominent supporters of open research, such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the European Commission and Wellcome in adopting this innovative publishing model….”
Springer Nature continues its support for open access publishing with its latest transformative agreement (TA) in Greece. The TA with HEAL-Link, the consortium of Greek academic libraries, will see authors from 43 academic and research institutions able to publish open access (OA) in over 2,300 Springer, Adis and Palgrave journals. This agreement will also give authors full access to subscription content in these journals.
Wiley, one of the world’s largest publishers and a global leader in research and education, today announced a new three-year open access agreement with HEAL-Link, the consortium of academic and research libraries across Greece.
“In response to the public health emergency of opioid misuse, addiction and overdose, NIH has launched the HEAL (Helping to End Addiction Long-termSM) Initiative. The NIH HEAL InitiativeSM is a trans-agency effort focused on improving prevention and treatment strategies for opioid misuse and addiction and enhancing pain management. As part of its response to this crisis, NIH intends to maximize the availability of Publications and the sharing of underlying data for NIH-Supported HEAL research projects. Given the urgency of this crisis as highlighted by the declared public health emergency, rapid availability of Publications and the primary data behind them promotes dissemination of new knowledge, enhances reproducibility, and accelerates the ability of researchers to build upon HEAL research to make new discoveries.
Through the HEAL Initiative Public Access and Data Sharing Policy (the “Policy”), NIH seeks to create an infrastructure that addresses the need for researchers, clinicians, and patients to collaborate on sharing their collective data and knowledge about opioid misuse and pain to provide scientific solutions to the opioid crisis. Under the Policy, applicants for extramural research funding (grants, cooperative agreements, contracts, and other transactions) (collectively, “Applicants”), for HEAL research projects are required to submit a Public Access and Data Sharing Plan that (1) describes their proposed process for making resulting Publications and to the extent possible, the underlying Primary Data immediately and broadly available to the public; or (2) if applicable, provides a justification to NIH if such sharing is not possible. Underlying Primary Data should be made as widely and freely available as possible while safeguarding the privacy of participants, and protecting confidential and proprietary data….”
