Open access to knowledge: TU Wien signs Berlin Declaration
The Berlin Declaration
The "Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities" was published in October 2003 by 19 international research institutions and universities, and has been signed by more than 600 institutions.
This international statement promotes free access to, and relaxed copyright restrictions on the reuse of, scientific information ("open access"), and is one of the cornerstones of the open access movement.
TU Wien signs Berlin Declaration
The TU Wien, represented by rector Sabine Seidler, signed the Berlin Declaration on April 26, 2018.
By joining the signatories, the TU Wien is demonstrating its support of the open access paradigm and the idea of widespread dissemination of, and free access to, scientific research results.
Services supporting TU Wien researchers
To support TU Wien researchers in publishing their scientific output according to the open access model, the TU Wien Library has been establishing services such as the publication fund over the last years.
