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

The ETH Zürich signed the “Berlin Declaration” on March 1, 2006 (http://oa.mpg.de/openaccess-berlin/signatories.html). It is the policy of the ETH Zürich to maximise the visibility, usage and impact of their research output by maximising online access to it for all would-be users and researchers worldwide. Therefore the ETH Zürich:

1. Requires of staff and postgraduate students to post electronic copies of any research papers that have been accepted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal (post-prints), theses and other scientific research output (monographs, reports, proceedings, videos etc.), to be made freely available as soon as possible into the institutional repository “ETH E-Collection” (http://e-collection.ethbib.ethz.ch/), if there are no legal objections. The ETH Zürich expects authors where possible, to retain their copyright. For detailed information see the rules of the ETH E-Collection.

2. Encourages their researchers to publish in a suitable Open Access Journal where one exists; the ETH Zürich will cover the publication costs, if any.
