Open Access

Peter Lang complies with the open access requirements of many research funders, such as the Wellcome Trust, the European Research Council (ERC), or the Austrian Science Fund (FWF). Peter Lang is partnering with OAPEN, making open access publications available both in their repository and on our own online platform. As a participant of the pilot project OAPEN-CH, organized by the Swiss National Science Foundation, Peter Lang AG has recently published several Open Access publications in cooperation with the repository of the Swiss National Library e-Helvetica among others. We actively support the open access policy of the Swiss National Science Foundation.

Peter Lang makes original, peer-reviewed scholarly research available in open access, should this be requested. These open access publications are made available digitally to all users immediately upon publication and free of charge for the reader. We support both gold and green open access options and offer open access publications under one or more Creative Commons licenses (we recommend authors ask their funding body after specific required licenses).
