11.01.2018 New consolidation of Thomas Mann network

The new network titled "Thomas Mann International. Das Netzwerk der Mann-Häuser" was commonly founded on Thursday, 21 December 2017. 

At a symposium in Lübeck, five institutions from four countries, reflecting the essential life stations of the writer and Nobel laureate, joined forces to form the common Thomas Mann network:

  • Buddenbrookhaus / Heinrich and Thomas Mann Center, Lübeck, Germany
  • Monacensia in the Hildebrandhaus, Munich, Germany
  • Thomas Mann Archives of ETH Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland
  • Thomo Manno kultūros centras / Thomas Mann Cultural Center, Nida, Lithuania and
  • Thomas Mann House, Pacific Palisades, USA, Villa Aurora & Thomas Mann House e.V.

The transnational association of these institutions is a novelty.

In the future, the institutions want to jointly promote cooperation in various event formats as well as in the fields of science and exhibition. They will contribute their respective expertise as archives, libraries, museums, cultural centres, residences and places of remembrance.

ETH Zurich's Thomas Mann Archives welcome the joint initiative and look forward to participating in the network.

08.01.2018 New SNSF open access policy from April 2018

New guidelines and funding options for publishing research results open access will apply at the Swiss National Science Foundation from April 2018. 

Against the backdrop of the National Open Access Strategy agreed in early 2017, the Swiss National Science Foundation aims to render all academic publications resulting from SNSF projects open access by 2020.

In order to achieve this goal, the following changes will come into effect for publications resulting from SNSF-funded projects from April 2018:

  • As regards the funding for open access journal papers, the present ceiling for article processing charges (APCs) of CHF 3,000 will be abolished until further notice
  • For book publications, the SNSF will now reimburse book processing charges (BPCs). These are also available for open access book publications that are not based on an SNSF-funded project
  • As of 1 October 2018, there will also be the possibility of funding open access book chapters
  • APCs and BPCs can now be requested via a separate platform within mySNF. This is also possible after the project has ended
  • For the green road, books now have to be self-archived after a maximum embargo period of 12 months; the permitted embargo for articles remains six months

Further information on the SNSF's open access policy is available on the website Open Access at ETH Zurich and the Swiss National Science Foundation website.

ETH Library's E-publishing Office will gladly help you with any questions regarding the SNSF’s open access guidelines.
