Open Access Library

The Open Access Library offers scientific publications for free. No log-in, no price tag.
We give publicly funded research back to you. Connect science and society.


  • A large part of publicly funded research is trapped behind a paywall.
  • The cost to read a scientific journal can reach up to €20,000 a year.
  • Most research data financed with public money is not publically available.

In short, we don’t have full access to knowledge we already pay for. If access is available, we are often required to pay again.

    The mission of the United Academics Foundation is to connect science and society: creating a world where scientific research results are accessible for all, so that knowledge can easily spread and be built upon.
