Open Access stands for unrestricted online access to peer-reviewed scholarly research. Open Access is free of charge and free of most restrictions on use and thus, encourages innovation, stimulates collaboration and helps making the use of fundings more transparent.

Together with PDI, WIAS' Open Access Commission plans a joint Open Access Day on 22. November 2018. We would like to inform WIAS and PDI employees about the latest developments in Open Access for example third-party funding on national and international level.
