We welcome Saarland University as new contributing institution!

The Saarland University and State Library (SULB) decided to make data on APC expenditures directly available in their institutional repository, which has now been harvested by OpenAPC for the first time via OAI-PMH.

The SULB is also in charge of the central publication fund at Saarland University, which receives support by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) under its Open-Access Publishing Programme.

Contact person is Ulrich Herb.
