Open Access

Full Visibility of Achivements

"Open Access" is a buzz word. What is in it for a university? Is it a political agenda? Maybe, but that's not the point here. The many things that are part of "Open Access" enable a barrier free enhanced visibility of achivements of the university today and still in the future:
  1. Full visibility barrier free! Online at your fingertips without pay barriers.
  2. Full visibility now! Not only metadata (author, title, abstract, year), but the full text now (not after 12 month embargo period).
  3. Full visibility easy to retrieve! Documents are well indexed: Use of DOI, URN, cataloged in National Library, Dublin Core, ...
  4. Full visibility still in the future! The full text guaranteed available also in 100 years and beyond through archiving.
