Are you going to publish your research results in a journal? Go for an Open Access publication! Open Access is not only good practice in academic work, but also mandatory for SNSF- or European-funded research (Green OA also accepted).
Gold OA: article freely accessible for everyone in a gold OA journal (no subscription to access the journal).Hybrid OA: publication in a subscription-based journal which offers an OA option. Not funded.Green OA: self-archiving of a version of an article in a freely accessible repository.
The SNSF covers the publication costs of gold open access articles (related to SNSF-funded research), open access books and open access book chapters.USI covers the publication costs of gold open access articles not related to SNSF-funded research.Costs for hybrid OA are not covered.See details
The USI libraries have recently signed Read&Publish agreements with publishers Elsevier, SpringerNature, and Karger, which allow USI researchers to publish Hybrid articles at no cost. Other similar agreements with publishers Sage and Taylor&Francis will be announced soon.
