Publication via JuSER publications portal

The official document repository of Forschungszentrum Jülich is operated by the Central Library and has an open access policy. Content of the open access collection of the publications portal can be read and downloaded in PDF format. We ask our authors to upload the accepted manuscript version of the publication (final draft post referee) to JuSER. After verifying secondary publication rights, we enable free access to the publication as soon as possible, thus ensuring the dissemination of the publication. Once the publication has been uploaded to JuSER, it can be found by open access search engines..
