Useful hints

The term "open access" describes the free access to scientific information of all kind. The university library Kiel has collected useful information on this topic on one of its websites. The site shows how research results can be published in the open access format, where the researchers needs to pay particular attention and how an application for funding can be submitted.

Open access offers researchers many different possibilties to publish the results and conclusions of their research projects. Unfortunately quite a number of dubious publications are active in this sector. This phenomenon is known as "predatory publishing"; the Graduate Center has collected information about this problem on one of its webpages.
