Researchers are stimulated to publish Open Access
. Publications in journals, conference proceedings and books e.g. fall under this policy.
The VSNU has negotiated deals with the larger publishers to enable Open Access publication in journals. Not all journals participate in these deals but offer to publish individual articles Open access when the authors pay the APV cost in advance. Must funders allow to budget for this option. The Open universiteit has an Open Access fund that can support your publication. Please take note of the requirements set by the fund (for OU researchers only).
