Who should attend

Researchers and doctoral candidates of the Department of Earth Sciences at Freie Universität, who (plan to) publish their research (e.g. journal articles, books), staff who support researchers in publishing


With a focus on Geosciences and with examples relating to Freie Universität’s Earth Sciences Department, we deliver compact insights into the current requirements for open access publications and present services for funding and consulting.


Open access means legally, technically, and financially free access to research publications, which is granted, for example, through open-access journals or by publishing in institutional repositories. As part of its commitment to open access to scientific information, Freie Universität Berlin encourages all university members to publish the results of their research digitally according to the open access principle without restrictions. In this compact introduction, we explain the most important principles and are ready to take your questions.

  • What does Open Access mean?
  • What guidelines on Open Access exist at Freie Universität?
  • What Open Access policies are in place by funding agencies and Geoscience academic societies?
  • Open Access publication fee funding: how does it work?
  • Demonstration of key elements in article submission workflows for the most popular Open-Access-journals at FU Department of Earth Sciences.
