Papago: Data protection

Access to external resources

In order to advise you on funding opportunities, rights and obligations regarding Open Access to your publications, we access information from the University of Fribourg via a search form. In this process, your IP address is transmitted to the servers of the University of Freiburg.

Papago also uses SHERPA/RoMEO, an online resource that aggregates and analyses Open Access policies from publishers around the world, and provides summaries of self-archiving permissions and conditions of rights given to authors on a journal-by-journal basis. This way, the information sheets can be further personalised depending on the journal and the embargo period required.
