As a trial, the University Library of Southern Denmark has become a supporter member of the publisher BioMed Central, which also includes SpringerOpen.
This means that researchers from SDU and OUH-forskere will get a 15 per cent discount in future, when they publish in the scientific online journals published by BioMed Central and SpringerOpen. No further subsidy is given by the OA fond.
Between them, the three publishers publish more than 250 peer-reviewed tidsskrifter, mainly in the fields of life sciences and medicine. These are Open Access journals, which means that they can be read freely by anyone, so that research results will reach more readers.
