Open Access (OA)
Please visit our new Website since April 2019
The Max Planck Society plays a leading role on a national and international level in encouraging the free availability of scientific publications.
The Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL) contributes to the shaping of the open access policy within the MPG and supports the open access activities at the Max Planck Institutes in collaboration with the libraries.
Here you will find information on Open Access in general as well as on Open Access in the Max Planck Society and on OA Gold Agreements between the MPDL and publishers on the central cost assumption of article processing charges (APCs).
