Central funding

Open Access

The University of Stuttgart shares the DFG’s goals of working towards the greatest possible cost transparency in the coming years

Cost transparency includes structural adjustments such as central billing workflows and the standardization of Open Access monitoring.

Currently, not all Open Access publication costs are known as a considerable portion is spent in a decentralized manner.


Central funding of Article Processing Charges

Authors at the University now publish around 60 percent of their articles as Open Access. Transparent costs are an important prerequisite for being able to plan costs and support consortial negotiations with the publishers.
