Institute of Public Health in Ireland's (IPH) Open Access Statement
This document states the Institute of Public Health in Ireland’s (IPH) commitment to an Open Access policy and outlines how it implements that policy.
"Open Access is the immediate, online, free availability of research outputs without restrictions on use commonly imposed by publisher copyright agreements. Open Access includes the outputs that scholars normally give away for free for publication; it includes peer-reviewed journal articles, conference papers and data of various kinds."1
The Open Access (OA) movement aims to:
- Provide access to scientific outputs in publications that are freely available
- Foster the adoption of open access publication models
To archive IPH outputs and optimise sharing across the internet, each resource produced by IPH (in entirety or in collaboration with other agencies) needs to have a registered Digital Object Identifier (DOI).
