​In its 2013 Statement on Enhancement of Open Access to Scientific
Publications in Europe, ALLEA invited the European authorities to take
measures to facilitate the transition to an Open Access (OA) model for
publications in scientific journals. To accelerate this transition, the
European authorities could advocate or adopt a legislation on a copyright
contract law provision allowing the authors of short scientific works
resulting from a publicly-funded research to make their work available to
the public free of charge following a reasonable period of time after the
work was first published. Such a provision can facilitate the deployment of
the so-called Green OA model according to which the published and
peer-reviewed article is archived and made available by the researcher when
the publisher has recouped its investment (for instance by selling
subscriptions during the embargo period).​
