Gold Open Access

We have concluded contracts and made membership agreements with some publishers. This gives researchers of the TU Bergakademie Freiberg advantages in the area of open access publishing. However, Article Processing Charges (APC) are often still to be paid.

The DOAJ (Directory of Open Access Journals) helps in the search for a relevant journal that may require less publication costs.

Frequently cited OA journals: The National Contact Point Open Access OA2020-DE compiled a searchable list of 800 frequently cited open access journals from nearly all scientific fields. The list ( contains journals indexed in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ).

You can find recommendations from our subject librarians on OA journals on our Specialized Information sites.
