Open Access Publications at the ZfL
As a signatory of the Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities, the Center for Literary and Cultural Research, Berlin supports free access to publicly funded research findings on the internet.
The ZfL, in cooperation with the Specialized Information Services for general and comparative literature (FID AVL) at the University Library Frankfurt a.M., has begun digitizing research findings on the publications server CompaRe, where information is accessible without financial, technical, or legal barriers.
In conjunction with the Wilhelm Fink Verlag and the Kulturverlag Kadmos, and with the authors’ permission, certain articles from conference proceedings as well as edited volumes have been made available to Open Access. The repository is continuously updated.
