Publish your research in Open Access


If you are interested in publishing in Open Access, do not hesitate to contact your Library. We will offer you individualised advice adapted to your needs. Try to Contact us.

The main ways to contribute to open access are by:

  • Publishing your articles in open-access journals and in open-access repositories
  • Publishing data from your academic and scientific research in open-access institutional repositories

These resources have been created and promoted with the aim of enabling teaching staff and researchers to manage author copyright in a satisfactory manner. The resources provide basic information about the importance of managing the author copyright of both your works themselves and the data that you generate in the course of your research.

What are Open Data?

Open data are data that can be used, reused and redistributed freely by any individual. The only conditions governing the use, reuse and distribution of these data are that the author must be cited (attribution requirement) and, if the author(s) have specified this, that the new data are shared and redistributed under the same conditions as those under which the original data had been shared.
