Re: European Research Council Mandate Green OA Self-Archiving


I am likely missing the point here:

"The ERC requires that all peer-reviewed publications from ERC-funded research projects be deposited on publication into an appropriate research repository where available, such as PubMed Central, ArXiv or an institutional repository, and subsequently made Open Access within 6 months of publication."
To place the paper on ArXiv is not the same as to provide an "Open Access"?

Doesn't the former and latter just mean: "availability to all"?

And if a publisher objects to a 6-month period and insists on 12-month one,
for example? I should not sign the deal or I am defended by law if I break
