Publishing

When publishing, think carefully before transferring your copyright to a publisher. It is important for the University that you retain as many rights to your work as possible so that DTU may archive your research in DTU Orbit.

Open access

Offering immediate access to DTU research through Open Access publishing is very important to DTU researchers. You may read more about Open Access on DTU Library’s Open Access pages.
