Access to Danish and international research for all

The major multinational publishers are currently proudly giving access to the part of their publications dealing with Coronavirus and COVID-19. The publishers, of course, are doing this because Open Access is the only way to ensure that everyone has access to all relevant scientific literature on COVID-19, which is one of the prerequisites for resolving this worldwide social crisis as quickly as possible.

At DTU Library, we have created an easy way to find Open Access publications, which are free for everyone to use, that is, all publications are available and meet the Open Access requirements. They can be used by everyone, free of the publishers' usual paywalls.
