Swiss institutions pledge 320,250 euros to DOAB and OAPEN, PKP, and OpenCitations


 After the pledge to DOAJ and Sherpa Romeo co-funded by swissuniversities in 2020, 18 institutional members and customers of the Consortium of Swiss Academic Libraries have now pledged funding to three services currently being promoted by SCOSS: DOAB and OAPEN, PKP, and OpenCitations. Over the next three years, the support will total 131,250 Euros for DOAB and OAPEN, 99,750 Euros to PKP, and 89,250 Euros to OpenCitations, for a combined total of 320,250 Euros.

Susanne Aerni, Head of Consortial Services commented on the pledge: “This pledge exemplifies the broad Swiss commitment to vital infrastructure for Open Access and Open Science. All Swiss Universities, all institutions of the ETH-domain, some Universities of Applied Science, CERN, and the Swiss National Science Foundation support these three vital services through the Consortium of Swiss Academic Libraries.”
