Derk Haank: Open Access publishing at Springer


Published on

Mr. Haank addresses Springer's position on Open Access. What has changed over the last years, what has stayed the same? Is hybrid developing into fully open, or will the models co-exist? He also touches upon the issue of (open) data. Making data available in a structured, useful way is much more complex than the current practice of article publishing.
