Special Conditions

Many publishers and journals offer special publishing conditions for members of Humboldt-Universität. In this case, too, publication fees may be covered by the publication fund for journal articles. Furthermore, additional personal discounts may be available, for example for members of academic societies or for authors who are invited to publish articles.

In addition to publication by the publishers or in the journals, all open access articles by members of Humboldt-Universität are also deposited and archived on the open access repository of Humboldt-Universität (edoc-Server).

The following special conditions are available to members of Humboldt-Universität, which are described in detail on the respective subpages.
