Open Access at Potsdam University



Open Access stands for unimpeded access to scientific and scholarly information on the internet free of charge and aims at fast and sustainable dissemination of research results. With a Senate Resolution Potsdam University emphasized its willingness to support the free availability of its research results and encourages all researchers affiliated to the university to publish according to Open Access principles.

The university offers various solutions applying to primary and secondary publications and provides advisory services on how to finance Open Access publications.

In 2017, the University of Potsdam provides a Publication Fund in order to finance publications in original Open Access journals.
