The International Association of Scientific, Technical and Medical Publishers (STM) has welcomed this week’s initiative of the French Ministry of Research, as part of the Presidency of the European Union, for organizing a conference in Marseille, France, on a Comprehensive Approach to Research, Innovation, and Higher Education — an effort to ensure coordination of European policies related to Horizon Europe.
STM further welcomed the resulting Declaration of Marseille, which establishes common values and principles essential for international cooperation in research and innovation. Freedom of research, research integrity and ethics, Open Science — values defined in the declaration — are all values strongly held by STM.
The Delegation is committed to fostering and promoting Intellectual Property, and to improving the universal protection and enforcement of intellectual and industrial rights.
STM publishers have long been committed to the widest possible dissemination of, and access to, the content they publish. The Association supports any and all sustainable models of access that ensure the integrity and permanence of the scholarly record; this encompasses the acceleration of unrestricted access to trusted research publications for all, as well as the acceleration of unrestricted access to publishing opportunities for European scientific and scholarly researchers.
STM continues to embrace the shared principle of freedom of research, which as current times demonstrate, must be vigilantly preserved.Click here to read the original press release.
