Publication and identification
The university library gives access to Open Journal System (OJS), where AAU staff can publish journals online. In this way, Aalborg University has a unique possibility for hightening its profile and present its research through its own journals.
Open Access is basically all about free access to research publications. The advantage of Open Access is that researchers increase the impact of their research.
