Obligation to Open Access: Academic Publishing of the Future?

  • Fabienne Sarah Graf
  • Dario Henri Haux

Abstract

Open Access is the principle of free access to scientific literature. Both the Swiss National Science Foundation and Swissuniversities are increasingly promoting Open Access. With this, the question arises, as to whether university employees may be obliged to publish Open Access. The authors describe in a first step, how this issue has been addressed in other countries, and then consider a possible implementation in Switzerland.
