Malmö university adopts an Open Access policy
Research staff and postgraduate students at Malmö University must deposit a copy of their research publications in the university's open archive, Malmö University Electronic Publishing (MUEP).
The mandate concerns all kinds of scientific publications, such as articles, dissertations, conference papers, book chapters, books and reports. There is an opt-out possibility when publishers don’t allow for self-archiving.
- We will not reach a hundred percent open access to our research immediately. However, it is our ambition that one hundred percent of our researchers will relate to their rights for open access for every single publication, says the publication group at Malmö University.
Malmö University staff and graduate students are also encouraged to publish their results in Open Access journals. Finally, the policy demands that all contents in the university's publication series must be deposited in MUEP.
The decision on a new Open Access Policy was taken by the Vice-Chancellor of Malmö University in November 2010 and the policy will take effect from March 1st, 2011.
