Helmholtz Open Access Policy

The Helmholtz Association has published a new open access policy. It is based on the EU funding programme Horizon 2020, so that publications should be available open access within 6 months or 12 months in the humanities and social sciences.

“In addition, employees must aim to make the research data underlying the publication accessible and open for sharing.”
