Shared Open Access Publishing Platform

SOAP2 (Shared Open Access Publishing Platform) is a joint project of the University of Fribourg (leading house), the University of Lausanne, the Central and University Library of Lucerne (together with the University of applied sciences of Lucerne), the University of Neuchâtel, and the University of teacher education of the Canton of Vaud.

It is financed by swissuniversities with CHF 164’400 from 1 July 2021 to 30 June 2023.

The core of the project is an online publishing platform that will be setup and managed by an external service provider. This allows the project partners to concentrate their main efforts on the development of a variety of service offers around the platform (which will be available in autumn 2021) and to share the costs of the technical management.
