Open Access Policy of Empa

Empa is committed to disseminating its research and scholarship as widely as possible. As a publicly funded institution, we have the responsibility to inform the public about our research activities and results. In line with these considerations the Empa signed the «Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities» and supports the principle of Open Access (OA) to the publications of its researchers in the firm belief that Open Access maximises the visibility, chances of usage and impact of research outputs. Empy actively supports the green and golden ways of Open Access through Empa's OA policy.

  • Empa's OA policy is installed starting July 1st 2019 and applies to all OA publications of Empa employees and affiliates subsequent to this date, Empa internal information here.
