Points relating to ESF visibility in paper publications: 

To ensure visibility of the RNP in supporting publicity, websites and publications, the authors should clearly identify such productions as being ESF-funded or co-funded activities, e.g. in announcements, books, abstracts, etc. ESF MOs contributing to the activity should also be credited in relevant publications. The ESF logo, remit and acknowledgement text for inclusion in such material can be made available by ESF upon request. A copy of any article or publication resulting from an ESF-sponsored activity should be sent to ESF.

Acknowledgement text for publications:

‘The work reported on in this publication has benefited from participation in the network Rights to a Green Future, which is financed by the European Science Foundation.’

Open Access

RNP participants are encouraged to deposit an electronic copy of any scientific publication relating to the RNP in an institutional or subject-based repository at the moment of publication. In addition, they are expected to ensure that this electronic copy becomes freely and electronically available according to the following conditions:

immediately if the scientific publication is published "open access", i.e. if an electronic version is also available free of charge via the publisher;


 within 12 months of publication for RNPs within social sciences and humanities, and within six months for RNPs in other scientific domains.

Points relating to book publications can be found in the ESF Regulations, p. 21 (Appendix G). See this website, under ‘ESF Guidelines’.
