Publication in Open Access leads to better visibility and dissemination of important research results. A framework agreement between TIB and the publishing house EDP Sciences will further support the transformation process towards Open Access in Germany.
The contract includes a 20% discount on the article processing charges (APC) to be borne by the authors for publication in the publisher's journals. The discount is valid for all German universities and research institutions and includes a simple handling of the submission process.
Information on the journals and conditions involved can be found here (PDF).
In October 2017, the TIB signed an agreement with EDP Science to publish conference reports in Open Access. It applies to all German conference reports from the fields of physics, engineering and technology, chemistry, mathematics and computer science in the corresponding journal series of EPD Sciences.
