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.

Springer Nature - content sharing extended Thursday, 21 April 2016

The publisher Springer Nature extends its content sharing for authors. Since December 2014 it is allowed for authors to share an unique read-only link to the published version of the article with colleagues. There is no subscription necessary to access these read-only versions. The tool that provides access to the content is called ReadCube. An interesting detail for the UZH repository ZORA: Springer Nature allows the storage of these links in repositories as well as in social media channels and the author's websites, which may lead to an increase of readership.

Open Access for monographs Thursday, 07 April 2016

Open Access is not only an important factor for scientific journals but also for books. Especially in the humanities and social sciences publishing of monographs is very common and popular. The business models of open access books have a greater variety than in regard of Open Access journals. Mostly so-called Book Processing Charges (BPC) have to be paid by the authors so that the the book appears with Open Access. The UZH supports authors from the HSS financially up to CHF 2,000 per year. More information on the Open Access publishing fund can be found on our website.

Another approach, in which the authors don't have to pay for Open Access is the one of Knowledge Unlatched.

Mit Stand März 2016 wurden bereits mehr als 10'000 Open Access Artikel durch die SCOAP3-Initiative publiziert, davon stammen allein 763 Artikel von Forschenden aus der Schweiz. Mit dieser seit 2014 bestehenden Initiative können Forschende aus dem Bereich der Hochenergiephysik in zehn zu Open Access konvertierten, referierten Zeitschriften kostenlos (für Autoren) publizieren (Zeitschriftenliste).  Die Kosten tragen etwa 3'000 Bibliotheken, Forschungsförderern und Forschungszentren aus über 44 Ländern sowie drei internationale Organisationen. Die Universität Zürich beteiligt sich auch anteilsmässig an den Kosten dieser Initiative mit einer Mitgliedschaft.

Was meinen Forschende der UZH zu Open Access?

Open Access-Statements

Ernst Fehr


"Ich bin der festen Überzeugung, dass die freie Zugänglichkeit zu wissenschaftlichen Ergebnissen eine entscheidende Rolle spielt, wenn es darum geht, Forschung in jeglichen Bereichen voranzutreiben. Meine Forschung stütze ich immer auf die Ergebnisse von Kolleginnen und Kollegen - die einfache Zugänglichkeit zu ihren Arbeiten erleichtert meine eigenen Experimente und Untersuchungen ungemein.
