Transparency and openness are key and fundamental principles for Swiss universities. In future, thanks to the Open Science concept, academia will open up even further for the good of society. In 2019, swissuniversities took concrete steps to achieve the strategic objectives of Open Access. Negotiations with the major academic pub lishers showed that, thanks to its cooperative approach and determination, the academic community can pave the way for transparent science, accessible to all. swissuniversities supports the associated cultural transformation and the establishment of new structures.
