On December 18, 2017 IdISBa's Board of Trustees approved the institutional policy of open access of the Institut d'Investigació Sanitària Illes Balears.
IdISBa considers it convenient and necessary to support the open access policy with the aim of promoting the dissemination of its scientific production, favoring the accessibility, visibility and impact of its scientific research, following the initiative of Budapest and the Berlin Declaration and the current national and international legislation on scientific dissemination in open access.
The definition of an open access institutional policy should allow:
- To increase national and international visibility.
- To increase the impact of the research carried out by the IdISBa researchers.
- To reflect the excellence in the quality of research.
- To ensure compliance with current legislation and recommendations, both at national  and international  level, and to guarantee that public-funded research results can be accessed without restrictions and free of charge.
Purpose of the Call
The purpose of this call is to promote the publication of original scientific articles in open access journals by researchers from the Institut d'Investigació Sanitària Illes Balears. The budget allocated to this call for 2023 is € 36,000.
The call will remain open throughout the 2023 or until the available funds expire. Only scientific articles with publishing date later than 01/january/2023 will be accepted.
Any additional information is available in the call rules.
 In Article 37 of Law 17/2022, of 5 September, which amends Law 14/2021 of 1 June on Science, Technology and Innovation, it is explicitly stated that public-funded research results must be published under an open access license. To that end, this article declares that a copy of the final version accepted for publication must also be made available in open-access repositories at the same time.
 Horizon Europe (2021-2027) in Clause 17 in its Grant Agreement requires every peer-reviewed paper that has been created from the funded projects from Horizon Europe to be deposited in Open Access.
