Bibliometric Study of the Swiss Publication System

Publicly funded research should also be open to the public and free of charge. This guiding principle was crucial for the recently published study on the transitioning of the publication system towards Open Access (OA). This study was initiated by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) in collaboration with swissuniversites within the SUC program 2013-2016 P-2 "Scientific information: access, Processing and safeguarding". The financial flows of Swiss Universities in regard of scientific publishing were investigated. As a result, various scenarios for the transition of the scientific publication system to Open Access were presented for the first time.
