Open access

The Italian National Research Council is deeply involved in adopting and supporting the principles of the European Chart for the free circulation of knowledge.

Besides the official sign of the ‘Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities’, Cnr is involved in several cooperation actions and initiatives held in collaboration with international research institutions with the aim of contributing to the definition of the best strategies  and policies for a free open access to scientific information.  


  • CNR SOLAR (Scientific Open-access Literature Archive and Repository)
  • CNR Open Access Publications, a web portal that collects and exposes the CNR scientific and technical production in order to facilitate research, navigation and access 
  • D4Science (Open Science and Open Access e-Infrastructure)
