EU Scientific Articles Could Be Freely Accessible as of 2020

The Dutch EU Presidency considers Open Science as one of its top priorities. Now Europe has made a definitive choice for open access. So all publicly funded scientific papers published in Europe could be made free to access by 2020. This is one of the main outcomes of the meeting of the Competitiveness Council in Brussels last month.
