The new phase of the Encyclopedia of Life (EOL) Open Access Support Project (EOASP) started last month, but with some slight changes in the eligibility criteria. The goal of the EOASP project is to increase the data flow into EOL, promoting the open access publishing model in taxonomy. Education is also part of the project as they value the importance of supporting and educating the next generation of taxonomists in open science principles.

This interesting news was found on Knowledgepeak in their article, “Encyclopedia of Life Open Access Support Project begins next phase with new eligibility criteria.”

Taxonomists here and abroad have need for assistance in publishing their work in quality journals. This project honors retired taxonomists by continuously supporting their research.
