Support services

Publication consulting

We will gladly advise you on how you can make planned publications open access (gold open access) – both via publishing in journals and with specialist publishers as well as on Humboldt-Universität's open access repository (edoc-Server).

We can also advise you on how to make not yet freely available publications open access (green open access) and can assist you with the necessary clearance of rights. However, we cannot and are not allowed to offer individual legal consultation.

Events and workshops

On request, we also organise informative events or in-depth workshops on open access at your department or institution, for your research group or for a particular audience (e.g. doctoral students).
