Open Access

The SCIEMCEE system respects Open Access and Open Science approaches. 

We are a signatory of:

The development of the World Wide Web created the possibility to make information available electronically across the globe. We support the endeavour to make scientific knowledge accessible to all people free of charge. Open Access represents part of the fundamental basis for innovative ways of working in the scientific sphere.

Budapest Open Access Initiative defined Open Access. The recommendations include the development of Open Access policies in institutions of higher education and in funding agencies, the open licensing of scholarly works, the development of infrastructure such as Open Access repositories and creating standards of professional conduct for Open Access publishing. The recommendations also establish a new goal of achieving Open Access as the default method for distributing new peer-reviewed research in every field and in every country.

The Berlin declaration on Open Access to Scientific Knowledge of 22 October 2003 was written in English (Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities) and is one of the milestones of the open access movement.


What is Open Access?

Open Access literature is online, free of charge for all readers, and permits its distribution and further use for research, education and other purposes. Open Access is focused on peer-reviewed scholarly research publications and their pre- and postprints. Open Access publishing is especially attractive for scholars who publish more to gain recognition than to derive income from their publications.

How to publish in an Open Access compatible way

There are two main strategies towards Open Access:

  • Self-archiving (Green Road)

Many traditional publishers permit self-archiving, i.e. they allow the author of a book or article in a toll access journal to make an electronic version (pre-/post-print, final version) of his/her publication available via a personal website or preferably a repository. A broad overview on the respective publishers’ policies is provided by the SHERPA/RoMEO list.

  • Open Access Publishing (Golden Road)

Open Access journals can be genuine (all articles) or hybrid (some articles are freely available directly upon publication). Several thousand peer-reviewed Open Access journals are listed in the Directory of Open Access Journals. Some of them require publication charges.

Why Open Access?

When authors provide Open Access to their work this leads to:

  • An increase in the visibility and accessibility of their research
  • Maximum usage and consequently a potential rise of the citation rate and impact
  • A strengthening of the author‘s position as usage rights often stay with the author of the publication
  • Application of innovative functionalities, for example integration of databases, research data or supplementary materials
  • Reduction of access barriers for interdisciplinary research and web-based scholarly communication
