Open Access

Library and Information Systems of Panteion University supports the free and immediate access to research.

“Open access addresses the problem of limited access to scholarly outputs, usually caused by high subscription rates.  It is the practice of providing online access to scientific information (articles, monographs, research data) that is free of charge to the reader, and licensed so that they can be further used and exploited by researchers, by the industry, and by citizens. Milestone definitions of open access include those of the: Budapest Open access Initiative (BOAI) and the Berlin Declaration (October 2003) on Open access. By removing legal, commercial and technological barriers to access of scientific information the research process becomes more efficient and research results more visible. Furthermore, open access prevents duplication, fosters knowledge and technological transfer and promotes innovation”. (Mediterranean Open Access Network (2013).
