Open Access Policy Guidelines

The Open Access action plan provides for the development of recommendations for the local Open Access guidelines of Swiss universities. To facilitate this, the Network of University Libraries (SLiNER) has now drawn up a set of guidelines.

The alignment of individual guidelines with common principles in line with international standards is intended to ensure coherence in the implementation of Open Access at universities, vis-à-vis researchers, funding organisations and publishers.

We would like to thank SLiNER, its Open Access working group and the project leader for this important contribution.
