MAXIMUM OPEN ACCESS TO PUBLICATIONS: WHAT DO WE NEED TO GET THERE?

The UT Executive Board and the University Library (LISA) cordially invite you to join the event ‘Towards 100% Open Access at the UT’ on Wednesday, February 21. 

Open Access (OA) to your scientific publications increases their visibility and impact. In line with the policy of the Dutch government, the UT wants to achieve 100% OA by 2020. What can you do as a researcher? What should the university do to make your work open and more visible? 

The core of this two-hour event is an interactive discussion with the audience and a panel of UT representatives with varying perspectives on what is needed to reach 100% OA. Experienced journalist Frénk van der Linden will lead this discussion.

Join our event and discuss what you need to get to 100% open access!
