GOAL, the project for unlocking the Green Open Access PotentiaL, is here. We, the team members, want to say hello to everybody and invite you to navigate through our website to find out more about GOAL.
We aim to foster Green Open Access in Switzerland. We believe that Green Open Access is a sustainable way to achieve 100% Open Access for publicly funded publications by 2024 and in the future. We also think Green Open Access fosters bibliodiversity and benefits all involved actors whether you are publisher, librarian, researcher, funder or simply interested in scholarly publications. How and why developing Green Open Access policies can be beneficial for you is something we will show in regular posts.
But who are we? We are a group of scholars and professional librarians from five Swiss academic institutions (ZHAW, HSLU, FHNW, ZHdK & PH Fribourg) working together thanks to our institutions› support and funding from Swissuniversities for the period January 2022 – December 2024. A Sounding Board consisting of twelve further Swiss academic institutions will help us to keep a broad view on the matter.
You can read more about the team members on our profiles page. If you find that GOAL interests you, feel free to look around on our website or, if you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
We will keep you posted regularly, also in German and French.
See you soon, bis bald, à bientôt
