International OA2020 initiative for the comprehensive application of the principle of open access to scholarly journals

With an international initiative for the comprehensive application of the principle of open access to scholarly journals, OA2020 wants to contribute to the large-scale implementation of free access to and the largely unrestricted use and re-use of scholarly research articles. To date, the OA2020 Expression of Interest has been signed by 136 science organisations throughout the world, of which 28 are from Germany, four from Switzerland, and two from Austria. The signatories include, for example, the German Research Foundation (DFG), the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF), and the Austrian Science Fund (FWF), as well as universities and research institutes. It is still possible to sign the Expression of Interest.
