The Project Deep Green aims to transfer scientific publications, which can be made freely available after the end of their embargo periods, automatically into open acess repositories. During the first funding phase the project mainly focused on publications with German alliance licenses. These licenses are funded and negotiated on a national level by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and contain special open access regulations.
For the second two-year funding phase (August 2019 – July 2020), the DeepGreen project aims at widening the scope on other licensing models and also integrating disciplinary repositories into the DeepGreen workflow. Another objective is the developing of a business plan and operation mode, so DeepGreen can be established as a nationwide service after the second project phase.
