Research & Information Links
Besides to our campus, Schiller students have access to other libraries:
Open Access (OA) is “the practice of providing unrestricted access via the Internet to peer-reviewed scholarly journal articles and some other resources”. In answer to the so-called serials crisis, scientific articles and research results are published on repositories, document server, or OA journals, which are accessible to all users free of charge. Therefore OA can be viewed as a return to a core value of scholarship – the free exchange of ideas.
