New report outlines the development of the FWF’s open access policy over the past 15 years

For 15 years now, the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) has actively supported the provision of open access to publicly funded research results. As early as 2004, the FWF adopted an open access policy, which has been updated three times since then.

In connection with its membership of cOAlition S, an initiative to make all publicly funded research results publicly accessible by 2020, the FWF will adapt its open access policy once again. As a basis for this, a new report examines the development that the FWF’s open access policy has undergone over the past 15 years.
