ERC Deposit Service for publishers

ERC requires authors or publishers to deposit the full text monograph or book chapter files in a repository of their choice immediately upon publication. Please consult the ERC OA requirements for full details.  The ERC Scientific Council mentions the OAPEN Library as the recommended repository for monographs and book chapters and other long-text publications.

We encourage publishers to deposit books into the OAPEN Library on behalf of authors. Publishers that are already members of OAPEN can use the normal uploading procedure.

All other publishers can use the online form to deposit publications on behalf of authors.

To complete this form you will need the:

  • ERC grant details
  • Full text monograph or book chapter file(s), plus associated metadata files if available
  • Embargo release date, if applicable (i.e. the date as of which open access can be provided to the publication through the OAPEN library).

If you prefer to fill in the form offline, please download it here
