Open Access at the University of Fribourg
The University invites the members of the academic community to
- retain a postprint version of their work, i.e. a version corresponding to the publication without the publisher’s layout or the last version before printing
- to deposit this version on RERO DOC submit (subject to the rights of third parties, although most publishers allow such self-archiving)
- or to publish their work directly in an Open Access Journal
With this request, the university would like to highlight the intellectual production property of its authors and continue the commitment it has entered into with the signing of the Berlin Declaration on 15 December 2008. It thus complies with the guidelines on Open Access issued by the Swiss National Science Foundation and the Swiss Academy of Humanities and Social Sciences.
The university commits to respect copyright laws, to ensure permanent linking and long-term archiving, and to provide authors with technical assistance.
