Open access means free online access to scientific and academic publications. Scientific publications are made available to everybody without financial, legal, or technical barriers. This ensures simple, speedy, and world-wide dissemination.

Open Access at Philipps-Universität Marburg

In March 2015, Philipps-Universität Marburg adopted an Open Access Policy. The university encourages its academics to publish their research results according to its Open Access Policy and make them available to the global scientific community and the general public. The university library supports members of Philipps-Universität Marburg by providing advice, funding and infrastructure for both Green Open Access and Gold Open Access:
