Open Access

“By 2024, all scholarly publication activity in Switzerland should be Open Access – all scholarly publications funded by public money must be freely accessible on the Internet. The OA landscape will consist of a mix of OA models.”
Swiss National Strategy on Open-Access, vision

Over the last ten years, the trend towards open access in the scientific publication system has gathered momentum. The higher education institutions and the Swiss research institutions are actively involved in the process. Following on from the National Strategy on Open Access, swissuniversities adopted an action plan to implement it in 2018. Publicly funded scientific literature should be freely available to everyone on the Internet.
