Dear participant in a Horizon grant,

This message is to inform you about the possibility to use the Open Research Europe (ORE) platform for publications resulting from your project (and any other publications).

In March 2021, Open Research Europe (ORE), the EC's open access publishing platform was launched. Whether you are a partner in a Horizon Europe or Horizon 2020 project, or a grantee of a European Research Council action or Marie Skłodowska-Curie action, ORE is a destination for publishing your research, making it immediately open access, and having it peer-reviewed and ultimately indexed.

The EC also created ORE so that you can easily comply with your open access requirements, even after your project or action has ended. Indeed, there is no administrative burden, and ORE comes at zero cost to you, because we cover the publishing costs.

ORE is a post-publication peer-review publishing platform that accepts original articles in all fields. It offers a variety of article types, ranging from research articles to methods and data notes. ORE has now reached more than 300 papers, which is a great performance for such a recently launched publishing venue. Besides, ORE has been indexed in a record time in Scopus, Google Scholar and many thematic indexers such as ERIH Plus or Inspec, with more to come, on account of its robust scientific and publishing policies. ORE is also fully aligned with the current collective effort for reforming research assessment.

You are invited to consult the platform website and in particular the sections on FAQs, policies, and how it works, which explain the publishing process in full detail. Do not hesitate to get back to your project officer in the Commission or Executive Agency should you need further information about ORE.

Hoping that you will consider ORE for your next research paper.
