Open Access Testimonials


Each year many researchers publish open access work in line with the open access policy of Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU). They make use of the open access publishing fund for their primary publications via the golden road, or ensure that their publications are uploaded to OPUS FAU or specialist repositories and made freely available via the green road after expiration of publishers’ embargo periods.

We have collected some of their experiences, their opinions on the advantages of open access, and their feedback on the support offered by FAU here. We would be pleased to hear your opinion and publish it here as well. Testimonials can be anonymous if you wish. Please send us a short message to ub-open-access@fau.de if you are interested in publishing a testimonial.
