Open Access at SDU

SDU adopted an Open Science Policy in 2018. This means the university encourages you to self-archive your publication in Pure when possible.

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.

According to the SDU policy you should not make compromise regarding the quality of journal you publish in. You should only publish in an open access journal if the journal is of significant quality in the specific field of research.

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
