Trial Policy Commons

We’re happy to announce that from today until 20th May 2021 we’re having a trial in place for the platform “Policy Commons”.

Launched in November 2020, Policy Commons is the first platform that brings together and organises the reports, papers and other research outputs published, often informally, by the world’s IGOs, NGOs, and third-sector organisations. It currently comprises 2.2 million items and a directory of 21,000 policy organizations, the largest ever compiled. Last month, 145,000 new items were added, as was a special collection of 45,000 items from African NGOs and 10,000 more ‘orphaned’ reports from inactive NGOs. Besides, Policy Commons meanwhile includes the complete catalog of publications from the Council of Europe, the Continent’s leading human rights organization. Policy Commons also enables members of the policy community to upload and share their own publications with the international policy community.

Content that matters
Policy Commons covers many disciplines—agriculture, energy, pharmaceuticals, diversity, crime, librarianship, and much more. Content is thoroughly vetted by the organizations that produce it, and it’s curated by editors. It’s highly current, with 34,000 items from 2020, including 8,000 items on COVID-19, and 9,400 on Black Lives Matter.

Access is possible for every user with a valid library card of the National Library, University of Luxembourg, LIST or LIH.

Open Access Publishing: National Library of Luxembourg signs transformative agreement with Taylor & Francis Group

The National Library of Luxembourg (BnL) and Taylor & Francis Group have signed a new three-year “read and publish deal” which offers access to journals content as well as open access publishing for researchers at participating institutions (University of Luxembourg, Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology, Luxembourg Institute of Health).

This agreement gives academics from the participating institutions the option to publish their work in Open Select (hybrid) and full open access journals without paying publishing charges and covers all articles up to an agreed cap. The deal also provides researchers with continued access to Taylor & Francis Group journals and articles.

“We are thrilled to be working with the National Library of Luxembourg to facilitate researchers making their work open, maximising both its reach and impact.” says Carolyn Kirby, OA Business Development Director, Taylor & Francis Group. “The agreement aligns with the Open Access mandate from the Luxembourg Research Fund (FNR), enabling authors to choose open access publishing with us.”

Patrick Peiffer of BnL says: “We are proud to partner with Taylor & Francis Group on this transformative agreement, helping our members to both share their work as widely as possible and to control costs through this landmark consortial agreement.”

Taylor & Francis Group is committed to open access, offering a variety of open access publishing options to meet the needs of each author, with rapid online publication, high visibility and discoverability for published research.
