Open Access and Research Data

Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik (SWP) places great weight on the independence, soundness and dependability of its research and advisory activities, and on the provision of a reliable information infrastructure. As an independent research institution, the SWP supports the goal of making research findings freely accessible over the internet without financial, technical, or legal barriers. Optimal accessibility of relevant information is a fundamental precondition for first-class research, and equally necessary for sound consulting. For this reason, the SWP has adopted an Open Access Guideline (2018) and expanded it in December 2020 to include principles for handling research data at the Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik.
