Denmark's National Strategy for Open Access
At Copenhagen Business School, we are committed to live up to the national strategy, which is also stated in CBS' Open Access Policy published in May 2019. This means that all CBS researchers are obliged to make their research publications available as Open Access, when possible. The vision and targets of the strategy is defined as follows. Read the strategy in full length here.
To create free access for all citizens, researchers and companies to all research articles from Danish research institutions financed by public authorities and/or private foundations.
From 2025 onwards, there should be unimpeded digital access for all to peer-reviewed scientific articles from Danish research institutions - with a maximum 12-month embargo.
What do I do as a CBS researcher?
The national strategy recommends Green Open Access (what is that?), where a peer reviewed version of the publication is uploaded to the institutional repository, often with an embargo period (depending on the journal and publisher).
⇒ What you have to do: Send us the accepted manuscript when we contact you.
We will take care of the rest, including:
If your article is published as Gold or Hybrid Open Access, you already comply with the national strategy and you won’t be contacted.
Definition of accepted manuscript:
At CBS Library, we will examine the rules and sharing policy of the publisher and the specific journal, to make sure not to compromise any copyright rules. You are always welcome to contact us if you wish to see for yourself what the publisher/journal allows.
Please note that most publishers operate with embargo periods. Embargo periods vary, but are typically 12, 24, or 36 months, counting from the date of “first published online”.
As an example, you can take a look at Elsevier’s Sharing Policy: https://www.elsevier.com/about/company-information/policies/sharing
