The Fraunhofer IPT promotes scientific exchange through open access

The immediate exchange of research results is imperative for the promotion of innovations. Open Access establishes cost- and barrier-free as well as long-term access to scientific results and scientific literature. The Fraunhofer IPT therefore prefers publication media that create this access.

A distinction is made between two variants:

  • Open Access Gold: First publication in peer-reviewed open access journals with immediate access.
  • Open Access Green: Parallel publication or with a time delay in a repository after the initial publication without open access.

The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft is committed to the free exchange of knowledge and provides centralized financial and advisory support. In this way, it supplements the resources available at the institutes to make open access publishing possible for all employees.
