Chalmers Open Access policy

Chalmers has the ambition to make all published research results freely available to everyone, this is known as Open Access. To ensure that Chalmers' scientific results are disseminated as widely as possible, the President has decided to introduce an Open Access Policy, which applies from January 1, 2010.

The Policy in brief:

  • Researchers at Chalmers must submit electronic full-text copies of their publications to Chalmers research portal,
  • Transfer of copyright should be avoided if possible.
  • The author should secure the right to parallel publish his/her work.
  • Publishing in journals that are freely available, so-called Open Access journals, is recommended when appropriate.
  • Exceptions from this policy can be granted in exceptional cases.
