Publication via JuSER publications portal
The full-text repository of Forschungszentrum Jülich is operated by the Central Library. It has an open access policy. Content of the open access collection of the publication portal can be read and downloaded in PDF format. Authors are requested to upload the accepted manuscript version of the publication (final draft post referee) in JuSER. After verifying secondary publication rights, the Central Library will enable free access as soon as possible, thus ensuring the dissemination of the publication. Once the publication has been uploaded to JuSER it can be found by open access search engines.
