National Open Access strategy for Switzerland
The Swiss National Science Foundation and swissuniversities have come together to agree a national strategy aiming for all publications financed with Swiss public money to be accessible free of charge by 2024.
The joint principles and strategy are outlined in a document published on 31 Jan 2017, which states “all stakeholders, politicians, higher education institutions (and their libraries) and funders have to join forces to pursue common goals” – including aligning existing OA policies and supporting new OA publishing models.
