As of January 1, 2022, the UT has a new policy on open access (OA) to UT publications, which expresses the responsibilities of UT authors, the University Library, and faculty boards to make 100 percent OA publishing the norm at the University of Twente. For authors, there are multiple routes to reach this 100 percent OA, see the flowchart below.
You can find more information on open access on the UT open-access website. Below is some information specific to EEMCS.
EEMCS will cover the costs of article processing charges (APC) for (high-quality) open-access journal articles or articles in hybrid journals when you need to comply with Plan S for articles accepted in 2023. Noting, however, that the fund might be depleted before the end of the year. Funding depends on the conditions given below.
Before applying for funding, check the following steps:
- Check the flowchart: Publishing articles open access as a UT author.
- Always check the open access publishing requirements of the Funding body of your research.
- Use the journal checker tool to check if the journal you want to publish in is compliant with Plan S.
- Publish OA for free in a non-APC journal in the Directory of Open Access Journals or on openjournals.nl.
- Publish OA at (up to) 100% discount in more than 10.000 high-quality journals that offer the discount to submitting UT authors. Check the UT Journal Browser. Use your utwente email address when you submit your article, make sure that your affiliation on the article contains ‘University of Twente,’ and when asked, indicate that you do want to publish open access.)
- Check OA options for ACM, SIAM, and IEEE journals and conference proceedings above.
- Make sure your publications are registered in UT research information. If there is no open version available in UT Research Information within 6 months, the published version will be made available based on the UT Open Access Procedural Regulations.
