Open Science

"Open Science" describes not only making individual results of scientific work accessible, but also making all components of the scientific teaching and research process as transparent, open and free as possible. In accordance with its Open Science Policy (DOI: 10.5281/zenodo.5602559, German and English), Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) offers its scientists a wide range of support.

With FAU University Press as FAU's own publishing house, you publish academic literature in high quality at attractive conditions and enable others worldwide to access it electronically - entirely in the positive sense of "Open Access" as a component of Open Science. This guarantees optimal visibility and citability.

FAU University Press showcases the academic output of FAU and promotes open access in fields in which the publication of monographs is deemed to be of considerable relevance. The open access publishing programme of FAU University Press is expected to grow at an above-average rate, both with regard to its subject range and the number of available titles, making research at FAU accessible to the international academic community.
