CBS' Open Access Policy:

In May 2019 a revised version of CBS' Open Access Policy was published.

The policy means that CBS researchers are committed to save the accepted manuscript of their articles for archiving in CBS' repository and to read funders' Open Access requirements and follow them.

CBS Library is committed to assisting researchers with questions regarding Open Access and to preparing and uploading Open Access versions of articles to CBS’ institutional repository. In other words, we are ready to help you, and you are always welcome to contact us.

Benefits of Open Access

Not all studies agree on this, but by making your publications available as Open Access, you make it easier for researchers from all over the world to access and use your findings - and at least you are not preventing anyone from gaining access.

Besides that, there is an increasing focus on societal impact, and by making your publications available as Open Access, you are able to increase your societal impact by giving access to the public, to SMEs, and to researchers and students from all over the world, removing the paywall barriers.
