Open Access
The "Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities" initiated by the MPS and signed on 22nd Oct 2003 by major European research institutions and funding agencies is a clear commitment to encourage researchers to publish their work according to the principles of the open access paradigm.

The Max Planck Society pursues two parallel roads towards open access:
 institutional self-archiving of research output on the eDoc server
 publications by its researchers in open access journals.


About the eDoc Server
The eDoc-Server is the legacy publication repository of the Max Planck Society (MPG). It has since been replaced in full by the succeeding system MPG.PuRe. Please visit PuRe for the current stock of MPG publications.
Most of the publications stored in eDoc have been copied to PuRe. All existing URLs to public eDoc items will stay active until further notice. However, as of now, it will not be possible to login and to perform any export or administrative operations in eDoc anymore. If you have questions concerning eDoc or MPG.PuRe please contact pure-support@listsrv.mpg.de.
