European Science Foundation
The PEER Project (www.peerproject.eu), held its final event to present its results on 29 May in Brussels. More than 100 attendees from the research, university, and STM publishing communities, as well as policy makers attended the conference.
Comments by Vice President Neelie Kroes (Digital Agenda) from the European Commission opened the meeting (speech available here) followed by an agenda reflecting the collaborative nature of the PEER project with results and perspectives from various stakeholders presented throughout the day. The presentations given at this event as well as the PEER Executive Partner statements resulting from this successful project can be found online at: http://www.peerproject.eu/peer-end-of-project-conference-29th-may-2012/.
The PEER project, supported by the EC eContentplus programme, aimed to investigate the effects of the large-scale, systematic depositing of authors’ final peer-reviewed manuscripts (so called Green Open Access or stage-two research output) on reader access, author visibility, and journal viability, as well as on the broader ecology of European research.
