I consider the results of and insights from, my research as important for the development of my field of research, and want to share them with anyone and everyone who is interested. Therefore I am pleased that the FWF as my funding agency also provides financial support for making scientific publications and research data freely available on the internet.

Although it is currently debated how the concept of Open Access could and should best be realized, it is generally agreed that scientific data and insights should be open to the public. Thus it is only a question of time until the concept of Open Access will be implemented in all areas of science and research.
