without Barriers

We support the free sharing of research results and help researchers to publish their papers in the sense of Open Access.

Information, Guidings and Trainings

The FID BAUdigital identifies subject-specific requirements for scientific (research) in civil engineering, architecture and urban studies and develops services to support Open Access publications in these subjects. Our information, guidings and trainings cover the following topics, among others:

  • Ways to promote Open Access
  • Self-archiving options (Green Open Access)
  • Identifying high-quality, subject-specific Open Access journals
  • Awareness raising on Predatory Publishing
  • Use of free licensing models such as Creative Commons
  • Benefits of persistent identifiers for digital objects, authors, and organizations (e.g., DOI, ORCID, ROR)


We regularly organize workshops for researchers in cooperation with partners from the area of Open Access.


Publishing conference papers Open Access

Oktober 26, 2022 (14:00-15:00) and Otober 27, 2022 (10:00-11:00)
In engineering, conference papers play an important role in communicating new research results. You are giving a talk or presenting a poster at a conference and would like your contribution to be published Open Access? Usually, the type of publication is specified by the organizers. In this webinar you will learn what rights and options you have as an author to publish your contribution open access.
Prior registration is not required. On two days we offer the identical event on the occasion of Open Access Week 2022.
