EPFL scientific publications
The Library plays its part in promoting the EPFL publications. It is involved in highlighting them and makes them available as much as possible to researchers, students and the public. The EPFL PhD theses, Master’s dissertations in some sections and books written by EPFL members also form part of our collections. A great number of other types of publications (articles, reports, patents …) are also available online in the EPFL open institutional archive, Infoscience, the content of which is managed by the Library.
A 4-year national agreement with publisher Elsevier

EPFL affiliated authors can now publish in Open Access at no cost in more than 2,000 hybrid and fully Gold Open Access journals and have an unlimited access to Elsevier articles. Cell Press titles, the Lancet and some selected society journals are not included in the agreement.
