This Factsheet contains recommendations to shape Open Access and Open Data so that they foster scientific progress and benefit society in Switzerland.
The factsheet addresses the scientific community, science organisations and decisionmakers. Key recommendations concern the promotion of Open Access schemes to disseminate scientific results as widely as possible, alternative cooperation and financing models for scientists and publishers, publishing under Creative Commons (CC) licenses, reward mechanisms for Open Access publications and data management work as well as issues related to data storage.
This factsheet will be presented at a panel discussion on Friday, 13 September, in the House of Academies. Participants: Rafael Ball (ETH Library), Daniel Marty (Swiss Journal of Geosciences), Sabine Süsstrunk (EPF Lausanne) and Franck Vazquez (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute MDPI).

The SCNAT is organizing this one day event in Bern, with the aim to give the research community the chance to raise their concern and also the SNF and the European Commission to present their view and to inform about recent trends. The workshop should provide recommendations on how to implement the open data requirements.
