Publishing and open access

Open Access

Open Access means the free availability of scientific information – free of charge for readers. Thus, everyone can read, print, download, distribute or mine open-access publications without financial, legal or technical restrictions

Open Access is part of the policies of national and international research funders and is sometimes a basic requirement for gaining any funds.

You can use the publication server MADOC for Open Access publishing. Other options for Open Acces publishing are provided by

  • publishers with a business model for Open Access, e.g. author processing charges (APC),
  • non-profit-organizations and consortia.

Please note that the possibilities of re-publishing already published articles may differ according to the authors’ rights as governed by publishing agreements.
