SYNTHESIS Publishing Policies

Open Access Policy

Like all Thieme subscription journals, SYNTHESIS also offers you the possibility to publish your work open access. Open access articles are available freely to read, download, print out and share, immediately and permanently: readers have access to your research independently of their libraries' journal collection.

Some funding organizations require that the recipients of their grants publish the resulting research open access. SYNTHESIS can offer you creative commons licenses that comply with the stipulations of all funders and help you fulfill their mandate. Of course, open access articles undergo the same stringent, high-quality peer-review process than any other article.

For further details, please contact the Editorial Office.

Archiving and Sharing Policy

If you wish or are required to publish your article in an institutional repository, please refer to the official Thieme archiving policy explaining which version of your article you are allowed to publish after an initial embargo period. Further information on all sharing options is available here.

Please also note that Thieme is a SHERPA/ROMEO blue publisher that allows posting of the final publishers' PDF on your personal website.
