Open Access

Open Access at the University of Lucerne

Open access makes publications more visible and enables everyone, in addition to members of universities worldwide, for example, also people from politics, business and culture, to use scientific findings.

There are various ways to make a scientific work accessible free of charge: A publication can be published directly and immediately open access under an open license via a publisher ("golden road"). If this is not possible, conventionally published works can be published at the same time or after a specific period of time via the LORY repository ("green road").  Finally, articles in a hybrid journal can be published open access, provided the journal is part of a read&publish agreement.
