CSIC Mandate

In 2019, CSIC approved its own open access mandate, which now requires institutionally depositing metadata sets of peer-reviewed publications, accompanied, whenever possible, by the full text of the publication.

This mandate considers the collection or deposit of metadata & datasets associated with the items, unless prevented by reasons of confidentiality, security or intellectual property.
