Welcome to OPuS – Open Access Publishing Support.
We are a non-profit foundation dedicated to open-access publishing. By means of our programs and projects, we aim to promote and encourage the Open Access publication model for academic and applied research results.

OPuS cooperates with university libraries, research funders, universities, scientists and scientific publishers in order to prevent a further rise of academic publishing costs during the transition towards the Gold Open Access model, while simultaneously maintaining quality control by means of peer review.

OPuS provides incubator facilities for new Open Access initiatives that are in line with OPuS’ goals and vision. These facilities range from advice and support to finding adequate funding. The strength of OPuS lies in its tight network of renowned experts with a shared vision.
