Green Open Access support

UNIL encourages its researchers to follow the Green Road towards Open Access.

In order to enable them to fulfil their OA mandates, UNIL offers their researchers its institutional repository, SERVAL, to self-archive and follow the Green Road.

UNIL researchers can request funding for Green OA for books through the Fonds de publications UNIL.

DeGruyter

This new license with De Gruyter Journals, valid from 01.01.2020, allows the immediate deposit and sharing (without embargo) in SERVAL of the published version of the manuscript (accepted and formatted by the publisher). Here is the list of journals that are included in this license.

Gold Open Access financial support

For UNIL researchers who are funded by the SNSF, all Gold OA fees (for books, book chapters and articles) can be claimed directly from the SNSF.

For UNIL researchers who are not funded by the SNSF, UNIL encourages following the Green OA Road (self-archiving in SERVAL). If the Gold OA is still preferred, book Gold OA fees can be covered by the SNSF. For articles, UNIL has negotiated special conditions with the following publishers for Gold OA publishing:
