ATLAS - A Trans-Atlantic assessment and deep-water ecosystem-based spatial management plan for Europe
ATLAS creates a dynamic new partnership between multinational industries, SMEs, governments and academia to assess the Atlantic's deep-sea ecosystems and Marine Genetic Resources to create the integrated and adaptive planning products needed for sustainable Blue Growth.
ATLAS will gather diverse new information on sensitive Atlantic ecosystems (including Vulnerable Marine Ecosystems (VMEs) and Ecologically or Biologically Sensitive Areas (EBSAs)) to produce a step-change in our understanding of their connectivity, functioning and responses to future changes in human use and ocean climate. This is possible because ATLAS takes innovative approaches to its work and interweaves its objectives by placing business, policy and socioeconomic development at the forefront with science.

- Curation policy:
Nucleotides data, imaging data, and environmental data (including bathymetry, physics, chemistry and biology) will be deposited in the selected data archives, i.e. European Nucleotides Archive (ENA), Euro-BioImaging (EuBI) and PANGAEA, respectively. Research articles will be published in peer-reviewed journals and other digital material (other than data) will be deposited at ZENODO.
There are two main routes towards open access to literature and data publications:
- Gold open access (open access publishing) means that data sets or articles are immediately provided in open access by the publisher. The business model of most journal publishers is shifting the payment of publication costs away from readers (subscription charges) towards the authors (Article Processing Charges, APCs). These costs can usually be borne by the university or research institute to which the researcher is affiliated, or to the funding agency supporting the research. ATLAS partners are strongly encouraged to use their institutional or ATLAS funds to publish research articles in Gold Open Access. Publishing data at ENA, EuBI and PANGAEA also follows gold open access but the cost model is different. ENA and EuBI are European Infrastructures and therefore offer their service free of charge to authors. The publication costs of data sets at PANGAEA are included in the budget of ATLAS’ UniHB partner. The information specialist (UniHB) will assist ATLAS’ partners in publishing their data in open access.
- Green open access (self-archiving) means that data sets or articles are archived (deposited) for free by the author in an online repository. In the case of articles submitted to a non-open access journal, a final, peer-reviewed and proofed-read version can be deposited in Green Open Access. Some journal publishers request that open access be granted only after an embargo period has elapsed. Research outputs that are published in non-open access by ATLAS partners will be deposited at ZENODO. The information specialist (UniHB) will assist ATLAS’ partners in publishing their data in open access.
