About the Press

The open-science team of the University Library Bern offers a wide variety of infrastructure and support for open access and open data to help implement the national open access strategy of Switzerland, the open-access requirements of funders and our own principles which are anchored in the University of Bern’s open access policy. 

In 2012 the University Library launched the publishing service BOP Serials to offer a plattform for the publication of scholarly journals. In 2021 the library added BOP Books.
