Open Access / Research Data (management)
For several years, Freie Universität Berlin has been committed to the Open Access idea and thus to the free accessibility of scientific knowledge. It offers extensive services, e.g. open publishing in Refubium, reimbursement or central payment of OA publication fees or advice on so-called "predatory publishers".
The teams of the Earth Sciences Library and the Open Access Department at the University Library can advise you on open publishing. You can also find information on the FU's OA websites, e.g. on whether OA publication fees can be paid centrally via the FU Publication Fund, via institutional memberships or via publishing agreements.
Research data (management)
The teams of the Earth Sciences Library and the Research Data Management Department at the University Library support students and researchers in managing their research data.
Take advantage of this support, for example, when creating data management plans or with questions about publishing research data. You can also find information on the FU's research data management websites, e.g. on what is meant by research data and what is important for data management in research planning and implementation.
