Information on Open Access
Open access (OA) means free and unrestricted online access to scientific and scholarly information. The information platform open-access.net satisfies the growing need for information on open access (OA) by gathering and bundling this information and processing it for various target groups and scenarios.
This website is tailored to the needs of the platform users, they also welcome your input.
Content of open-access.net
At open-access.net you will find information on the core concepts and main forms of OA, for example on OA journals and repositories, on the origins of the OA movement, on OA business models and on legal issues relating to OA.
OA is a topical and forward-looking issue that attracts strong support worldwide. Arguments for OA include the increased visibility and impact of openly accessible scientific and scholarly texts, and the diverse possibilities for the re-use of research results by other scientists and scholars and the public at large. However, there are also reservations about OA.
The information platform offers users the possibility to approach OA from a thematic, discipline-specific, or role-specific perspective (for example as an author or the founder of a journal).
The project open-access.network, funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), is offering a Help Desk to answer questions on open access.
