Project deliverable Open Access
The current document under the title “D7.1 Communication and Dissemination Strategy and Plan” defines the communication and dissemination strategy of the project and describes the channels as well as the tools to be utilized during the EFFECTOR’s lifecycle. Moreover, it includes the project’s communication and dissemination plan and for easier comprehension by the reader, the plan is divided in two core parts, the Calendar of Communication and Dissemination Activities and the Action Plan. The first one consists a timeline of activities that stem from the DoA and other interlinked activities, while the second lists the project partners’ intentions for disseminating the project under various methods. The consortium partners expressed their intentions via a questionnaire, prepared by ICCS, and provided their individual dissemination plan in regards to the project. It is noteworthy that specifically in scientific publications, the consortium will put effort on utilizing a very promising platform created and supported by EC, the Open Research Europe. This platform will assist the EFFECTOR partners to overcome difficulties that arise from obstacles towards open access of project’s results that occur from publishers’ policy (e.g. embargo period).
D7.1 is a public deliverable of this project, part of WP7 and additionally includes information about the project's scope and objectives as well as the description of WP7 in order to ensure that no prior knowledge related to the project, the DoA and the other WP7 deliverables is requested from the reader. Overall, it is based on, and is consistent with the DoA and the GA, but is not a substitute for reading these documents
