Here you can find information and offers related to publishing your research findings and research data. The emphasis is on open access, which enables free-of-charge access to research findings as a core element of open science and scholarship.

The terms 'open scholarship' or 'open science' refer to a fundamental change in the academic system – away from the inaccessibility of academic research towards increased access, transparency and clarity. Each component of the academic process can be made accessible and usable via the Internet, thus opening up new possibilities for academia, society and business to work with academic findings.

As part of the Hamburg Open Science programme, the University Information and Library Service (HIBS), together with HAW Hamburg's Open Science Team, has acquired the technical infrastructure to make academic works available as open access publications at no cost to users.
