Central German information platform on open access launched


Researchers in Germany can now go to a central DFG-supported website to find information on open access-related issues, ranging from publication strategies and legal aspects to the relevant policies of research institutions such as Max Planck Society and Helmholtz Association. The platform, jointly operated by four leading German universities, offers advice for authors, journal editors as well as for other stakeholders, and will be extended further to include services, such as discipline-specific information.


BioMed Central’s rapidly growing number of German authors and journal editors may be interested in joining the discussion forum, suggest additions to the site or provide information about their experiences.
