What is open access? What are benefits of open access? How to publish open access?
The open access basics help you to get started.


In order to support researchers in open access publishing, the university library has signed up specific agreements with various publishers. These agreements allow authors to publish their articles open access either at a discount or free of charge. Furthermore, open access publication fees can be paid by third-party funds.


University members can publish their research papers via the research information system Pure and the publication server OPUS.
