[google transl.] The number of UZ scientific articles has doubled this year to 5,000.
The repository for scientific publications of the University of Zaragoza, called "Zaguán", has a total of 48,151 documents. This year the number of scientific articles on the campus has doubled to 5,000. These days the Open Access Week is celebrated in Zaragoza.
The Library of the University of Zaragoza celebrates Open Access Week and this Tuesday has invited one of the heads of Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, better known as MPDI, the leading organization in publishing scientific publications with free and open access, to promote the scientific culture of open knowledge. A real revolution in the publishing world, usually covered by journals to which institutions must subscribe in order to have access to the articles published by their own researchers.
Facundo Santomé, Scientific Editor and Head of Communications and Marketing at MDPI, will be at the Faculty of Sciences this Tuesday 23 October at 12.00 to talk about this new editorial trend that seeks to escape the tyranny of paid subscriptions and to which several authors from the University of Zaragoza have already joined.
In 2013, the University of Zaragoza initiated an Open Access policy, with the approval of the Agreement of the Governing Council of the University of Zaragoza, on open access to knowledge and the signing of the Berlin Declaration on Open Access.
Following this, the institutional Mandate of the University of Zaragoza for Open Access for scientific publications was issued and the Instruction for the open publication of doctoral theses was signed on 30 May.
