Set up in 2020, the Open Access Service Center is a service provided by the Bonn University and State Library (USL Bonn). Our team offers the following services:

  • We advise and train you on all issues connected with open access.
  • We provide financial resources, known as open-access funds, for articles and monographs in order to cover publication costs.
  • We agree special terms with publishers, get involved in open-access initiatives and support the open-access transformation.
  • We help you publish work for a second time on the University of Bonn's bonndoc platform ("green model").
