The digital strategy of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities
1. Online presence
2. Digital availability and open access
The Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities strives to ensure that its research findings can be reused by as broad an audience as possible. In line with its open-access policy, it publishes information about the academy and its research projects on its free institutional repository under the CC BY creative commons license, which is recommended by the German Research Foundation (DFG).
The publication of some content may be delayed by several years due to existing agreements with publishing houses.
3. Digital research methods
4. Sustainability and long-term archiving
Using technical systems operated at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre, the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities is responsible for the long-term archiving of digital publications and research data. Older publications and research material are scanned and also digitally archived. Digital archiving complements the storage of original materials and is not meant as a replacement for this.
