It’s international Open Access Week and time for Orbilu

What does “Open Access” to information mean? It includes not only free but also the immediate online access to the results of scholarly research as well as the right to use and re-use those results. Encouraged by the Open Access initiative, the successful movement has direct and widespread implications for academia, science, industry, and for society as a whole since.

From the 20th to the 26th October, the scientific community celebrates the increasing success of the Open Access movement with promoting events. We take that as a welcome occasion to make you aware of Orbilu – a major contribution to the Open Access movement in Luxembourg.

Orbilu is the portal of the University of Luxembourg to make the scientific publications of its researches accessible online for everyone and for free. The University of Luxembourg takes part in the Open Access movement with Orbilu since 2013.

By now, Orbilu contains about 8000 scientific publications.
