Publisher's Open Access Policy

RoMEO is a searchable database of publisher's policies regarding the self-archiving of journal articles on the web and in Open Access repositories. Each entry provides information on what version of an article can be deposited, where it can be deposited, and any conditions that are attached to that deposit.


Max Planck Publication Repository (PuRe) REST-Interface

The Max Planck Publication Repository (PuRe) is the publication platform of the Max Planck Society and records the publications of all Max Planck scientists. PuRe provides a “Search and Export” feature which enables Max Planck scientists to integrate their publications into external systems, e.g. their homepages (REST-Interface).


SCOAP3 is a Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing having developed an innovative model to achieve "Gold" Open Access. SCOAP centrally pays publishers for costs involved in providing Open Access. In exchange, SCOAP3-journals are open for any scientist to publish without any financial barriers. Copyright stays with the author, and a permissive CC-BY license is applied to the publication.
