4. Everyone who has received financial support by the University College of Borås for their dissertation work is expected to publish their dissertation in a series that belongs to the University College of Borås.
This does not prevent the dissertation to be published in another university series as well. The dissertation should also be published in BADA.

All employees at the University College of Borås are recommended to deposit manuscripts to BADA according to the rules and regulations of the journal, and if such rules and regulations are lacking the author should request permission to deposit the article in BADA.

6. All employees at the University College of Borås are encouraged to, according to SUHF (The Association of Swedish Higher Education) recommendation; publish their scientific articles in an Open Access journal when there is an appropriate one.

Exceptions from this are student theses from the School of Textiles with textile material and other material examples included in the theses.
