Institution's/Department's OA Self-Archiving Policy

The Rectorate of Bielefeld University has officially adopted an OA policy based on the Berlin Declaration (October 2003) http://www.zim.mpg.de/openaccess-berlin/berlindeclaration.html and the Berlin 3 Open Access recommendations (Southhamption, March 2005). http://www.eprints.org/berlin3/outcomes.html.

In the spirit of these declarations the Rectorate of Bielefeld University:

1. Strongly requests the scientific authors of the University to deposit a copy of all published and refereed articles in the e-Scholarship Repository of the University, if there are no legal objections by publishers. The University acknowledges that a significant percentage of publishers support already institutional self-archiving actions by their authors.

2. Encourages and supports scientific authors of the University to publish in Open Access journals.

The upcoming e-Scholarship Repository will be a new server to be set up in addition to the already existing Institutional Repository (BieSOn, http://bieson.ub.uni-bielefeld.de ) Bielefeld, 7 June 2005
