Open Access is free access to research publications with as few restrictions as possible.
This means that research is both readable and usable without users need to login or pay for access. Open Access research has a wider reach both to other researchers and for societal use.
SDU adopted an Open Science Policy in 2018. Because of this the university works purposefully to make research publications widely accessible via SDU's Research Portal. SDU's open access publications are also available in search engines, SDU Library's search interface and Unpaywall, which is used by the database Web of Science as well as others.
SDU is also supportive of the national open access strategy adopted in 2014, saying all research supported by public funds should be made publicly available through the Green Open Access method.
The Pure Office offers support when you want to parallel publish in Pure. We offer to help you clarify rights and terms in specific cases and with correct upload in Pure. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note that SDU Library previously managed an open access fund to support affiliated researchers. This is closed for the time being.
