Open Access with transcript
Freely accessible content has long been a reality that we, as a publisher, are fully committed to continue shaping. We support the widest possible dissemination of scholarly publications and therefore offer our authors the option of making the digital edition of their publication freely available in Golden or Green Open Access as an alternative to a paid e-book. Our Open Access library is growing steadily. We balance the interests of all stakeholders involved in a way that allows for a new culture of publishing to emerge between the traditional values of book publishing and the innovations of the 21st century. After all, for us, scientific publishing in Open Access means much more than merely the processing of data and the filling of archives and repositories!
Benefits of Open Access for academia
- best possible global distribution of content
- easy access for researchers and students, even without VPN (no digital rights management)
- Unrestricted usage of OA publications in teaching, e.g. integration into digital semester collections
