Science Matters - new Open Access membership Wednesday, 15 June 2016

The University of Zurich has a new membership with the innovative Open Access Journal "Science Matters". This allows the researchers of the UZH to publish their articles for free for a pilot year. The innovative thing about Science Matters is that single observations can be published without having a big story. After a fast review procedure, articles will be published within two weeks from submission and can be commented online. For more information about Science Matters check out this blog post or the video below.

At the meeting of the Competitiveness Council of the EU on 27 May 2016, the conclusions on Open Science were adopted (see also article in Science). The goal’s content matches with the objectives of the Amsterdam Call for Action on Open Science of the Dutch EU Presidency and the Open Science Policy Platform of the European Commission. These initiatives and decisions demonstrate that there is a great political consensus to enforce Open Access and Open Science in a broad approach. All scientific publications should be Open Access by 2020.

SNSF Open Access monitoring report Wednesday, 11 May 2016

The SNSF Open Access monitoring report shows the self-evaluation of its funding policy and includes a lot of figures of Open Access publications. The SNSF is satisfied with the substantial share of Open Access publications as a result of SNSF funding. The aim is to increase the share of Open Access and to point on the importance of Open Access in collaboration with swissuniversities. The SNSF tries to follow important Open Access routes like the EU, the Austrian Science Fund and the Netherlands. The humanities could increase it's Open Access content through the project OAPEN-CH compared to other disciplines. The SNFS guidelines for Green Open Access have already been adjusted. So starting from January 2016 all publications should be made publicly and freely accessible through a repository. The publications of SNF-funded researchers at the University of Zurich should therefore be archived in ZORA to meet the guidelines of the SNF regarding Open Access.

SystemsX.ch advocates Open Access through ZORA Monday, 09 May 2016

The Swiss Research Initiative in Systems Biology (SystemsX.ch) recently published their newsletter and emphasizes the importance of Open Access. One key element of Open Access is that the research results of publicly funded research must be made publically accessible. This not only increases the visibility of their own research but also allows text and data mining. The possibility to do such analysis is often forbidden when it comes to subscription journals.
SystemsX.ch therefore calls on researchers to go the green way of Open Access via ZORA. This means that the accepted version of the publication must be self-archived in the UZH-repository ZORA. Read more about the difference to the gold road to Open Access in the newsletter of SystemsX.

Was meinen Forschende der UZH zu Open Access?

Open Access-Statements

Prof. Dr. Rolf Zinkernagel

"Open Access ist eine sehr gute Sache. Wir Wissenschaftler dürfen sie aber noch weniger missbrauchen als 'normale' Journale, weil die Verstopfungsgefahr durch 'Irrelevantes' noch grösser ist".

Prof. Dr. Rolf Zinkernagel, Professor Emeritus Universität Zürich, Nobelpreisträger für Medizin
