Price Transparency for Open Access Publication Fees

27 February 2015
The Central Library is taking part in a project run by Bielefeld University Library and the German Initiative for Network Information e.V. (DINI).
The aim of the project is to comprehensively document the Open Access publication fees paid by universities and non-university research institutions in Germany.
In Forschungszentrum Jülich, the necessary costs of Open Access publications are paid by the ZB.

The figures for Forschungszentrum Jülich are available on the openapc-de project site:
