Open Science stands for the opening of research processes and access to research data and publications both for scientists and for the interested public. In this context, the dissemination, duplication and reuse of research results/publications and the data and methods on which they are based are made possible - at best even during the research process. The aim is also quality assurance in research.

Open Science - Open Access
The University Mozarteum makes its support of the principles of Open Science visible by signing the Berlin Declaration and publishing an Open Access Policy. The library provides the necessary infrastructure and the following services:
- Open Access Publishing in the institutional repository
- Open Access Publication Fund
- DOI (Digital Object Identifier) Allocation
- ORCID ID
- Avoidance of Predatory Publishing
- Training / Information Events
- Publication of Open Access Journals via OJS OER Research Data
The Mozarteum University recommends that all publishers secure the exploitation rights, reproduction rights and the right to make the work available online in the repository in their contracts with publishers.
Some publishers generally allow free publication in the institute's own repository after a certain embargo period. We welcome information about this and will gladly take care of the further steps.
Submission for publication in the repository is done through the following forms:
- Essay in a journal
- Essay in an anthology
Note: Please ensure that the rights are respected and upload the work in PDF/A format.
- Convert the publication to PDF/A format compliant with archiving standards.
- Select form.
- Take note of the privacy information.
- Fill in the information about yourself and your publication.
- Specify the license. This determines the extent to which the scientific work can be accessed.
- Confirm the declaration of consent. This grants the Mozarteum University Library the non-exclusive right to publish and archive the work according to the specified criteria. In addition, it is confirmed that the author has complied with the copyright requirements and regulations.
There is no automatic release of the uploaded publication. The document is therefore only visible on the Internet after release by the Mozarteum University Library and can be used for academic and private purposes in compliance with the legal framework. In the case of a second publication, the document will only be published in the repository after any embargo periods have expired. The work should nevertheless be submitted immediately by the publisher.
To ensure citability, works will be given a permanent link address . Documents are archived according to the current state of the art and, if necessary, converted to ensure readability. Metadata will be shared with other relevant repositories and search services.
The uploading and making available of documents on the publication server are copyright-relevant acts of use according to §§ 15 and 18a UrhG.
Works may only be uploaded to the platform by sole rights holders - if this is not the case, works may only be uploaded with the explicit written consent of other rights holders (in particular: co-authors, publishers, third-party funding bodies). In particular, no publisher or other third party may be granted exclusive exploitation rights to the work.
By uploading, the user confirms that he/she has clarified the copyright permissibility of the work and each of its components (e.g. images) and that he/she is authorized to do so. Uploading also confirms that no rights of third parties are infringed and that the University Mozarteum is indemnified and held harmless.

Open Access Publication Fund
The University Mozarteum Salzburg pays the publication fees for its members for open access publications, provided that the stated eligibility criteria are met and publication in the institutional repository is approved. The library's Open Access Team is available for initial non-binding inquiries.
- Journal articles in open access journals
- Journal articles in hybrid journals*
- Open access monographs
- Entire edited works, edited volumes and conference proceedings, provided that the corresponding author is located at the Mozarteum, but not individual contributions.

This means that only some articles in a journal are open access, but not the entire journal. Closed and open access articles are offered side by side in a journal. The journal functions as a hybrid journal, in contrast to the open access journal, which offers all articles freely accessible.
- All research members (= artistic and scientific staff, students) are eligible to apply.
- The applicant must be the first author (corresponding author) and acts as contact person for the publisher.
- In the publication or on the website of the journal, the organizational affiliation "Universität Mozarteum Salzburg" or "Mozarteum University Salzburg" will be noted.
