Open Access pilot Taverne

As of 2019 we give Open Access an extra boost with the Taverne pilot "You share, we take care". The goal of the pilot is to increase the number of EUR publications in Open Access substantially and structurally. The Library is responsible for Open Access and is happy to help you publish your articles in Open Access.
