The FWF's Open Access Policy over the Last 15 Years – Developments and Outlook

Rieck, Katharina

The report outlines the developments of the open access (OA) policy of the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) since its first release in 2004. Over the last 15 years, the FWF has not only continuously updated its OA policy but has also adapted its support mechanisms such as dedicated funding programmes and financial support structures for alternative publication venues and infrastructures. A brief analysis of the FWF’s open access funding will be provided in the second part of the report, which will conclude with an outlook of the upcoming revisions to the OA policy.








I would like to thank Doris Haslinger and Falk Reckling for their valuable feedback.
