Publishing Open Access

When you publish Open Access (OA), the peer-review process and often even the journals are the same as for traditional publishing. The difference lies in the number of people who have access to your publication: Anyone with an Internet connection has access to OA publications; only those who pay have access to closed publications. 

The advantages of OA publishing are enormous for researchers and scientific research. And chances are that you can publish OA for free in top journals in your field, thanks to agreements between the Dutch universities and publishers. 

Visit the UT Open Access page and discover the advantages of Open Access, how to assess the quality of OA journals, how to publish OA for free as a UT author, and how to easily open up your closed publications after all. 

Would you like to request a presentation for your research group, about your options for OA publishing and opening up your closed publications? Would you like personal guidance in publishing your work OA or do you have a question about Open Access? Please contact the information specialist of your faculty or send your question to the Research Support Desk. They will gladly help you.
