Recommendations on the Transformation of Academic Publishing: Towards Open Access (9477-22_en), January 2022
The faster and more widely research results are received and discussed, the faster other scientists can build on them. It was not only the COVID-19 pandemic that made it clear that immediate free access to new scientific findings is of great importance for the progress of science and for society. The German Science and Humanities Council therefore advocates that the final versions (version of record) of scientific publications be made freely available immediately, permanently, at the original place of publication and under an open licence (CC BY).
