Open Science

Open Access Week

International Open Access Week 2021: “It Matters How We Open Knowledge: Building Structural Equity.” from October 25 2021 to October 31 2021

Open Science should embrace a diversity of knowledge, practices, workflows, languages, research outputs and research topics that support the needs and epistemic pluralism of the scientific community as a whole, diverse research communities and scholars, as well as the wider public and knowledge holders beyond the traditional scientific community, including Indigenous Peoples and local communities, and social actors from different countries and regions, as appropriate. (UNESCO Recommendation on Open Science, Page 7)

Second publication service - limited time offer during Open Access Week 2021

In most cases, publishing rights are surrendered when a publishing contract is signed. During the International Open Access Week from October 25th to October 29th, 2021 we offer a very special service: just send us your publication data and we will check the rights for a second publication on the Green Way of Open Access. If the rights can be clarified, we will carry out the online publication in the MONARCH-Qucosa repository for you or recommend a professionally relevant repository for the presentation of your research results and data. Your advantage is obvious - with little effort to more visibility.

The best way to let us know of your interest is to send an email with the subject "Second publication".

You can also send us publication lists from the last three years so that we can check the requirements for a secondary publication.

Time: October, 25th to October, 31rd, 2021
