Open Access policy
The University of Konstanz declared Open Access to be a guiding principle for its scientific publishing strategy in 2012.
Open Access has long been an important topic at the University of Konstanz. KIM offers a wide range of services for researchers such as the publication fund for covering Open Access author fees, support in the publication of Open Access journals, our full-text KOPS repository and, of course, advisory support and events related to Open Access.
KIM is also very active outside of the university in terms of externally funded projects. For example, with our EU project OpenAIRE we are the point of contact in Germany in regard to all questions relating to Open Access in EU-funded projects. With our information platform open-access.net, we operate the most important German-language information service on Open Access.
