The Max Planck Society promotes open access in a variety of ways. Firstly, scientists are supported in adopting an open access strategy when they wish to publish the results of their work.
The Max Planck publication repository offers the opportunity to publishing research findings via the "green road" approach:
The "golden road" of open access is supported by paying the publication fees for open access journals from a central budget. To do this, the institute's library cooperates with the Max Planck Digital Library acting as the central service facility to negotiate agreements with various open access publishers.
Please contact the institute's library to arrange the financing of publication fees. For more information see also:
