Open access

What does open access mean?

  • Open access means that the author retains the copyright to his/her publication. 
  • Open access means that the reader has free access to scientific information on the web and can read, quote, download and print scientific, quality-reviewed publications free of charge.
  • Open access also gives more citations and faster dissemination of research results.
  • Open access is on the way to becoming the norm for disseminating scientific information on the internet. The results of publicly funded research must also be openly available to everybody. This is a requirement at both national and European level for researchers, universities, funders and authorities.
