Welcome

Open Access (OA) means unrestricted online access to your writings.

OA is not a different form of peer review or a lower standard of publication. OA is simply a means to provide additional access to research findings.

The following guide explains how you may promote OA publishing.

Why choose Open Access (OA) as a publishing method?

  • OA meets grant requirements
  • OA is associated with greater Web visibility
  • OA journals may be peer reviewed
  • OA boosts the speed of dissemination of your publications
  • OA increases your article citations as evidence is developing that greater visibility of research boosts your citation frequencies.

Funding

NWO

Conditions for new calls for proposals have been changed by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). All funded research for which the calls were issued after 1 December 2015, must be immediately made accessible to everybody via Open Access (OA) publications. The granting conditions for calls published before this date and current research projects remain the same. Read more .

European funding

  • The European Union has also made open access publishing mandatory for research funded by grants through the Horizon 2020 programme .
  • Are you a researcher, partner or coordinator in a FP7 project that has recently finished or is approaching its end-date? Your forthcoming peer-reviewed Open Access publications could be eligible for funding. Read more .
  • Read more on OA funding on the Dutch national OA website .

OA journals and publisher policies

OA journals and publisher policies

  • Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ): Lists almost 10.000 OA journals
  • SHERPA/RoMEO : lists publisher copyright and self-archiving policies. To see what publishers allow in terms of self-archiving, check the publisher or journal name in this directory. Listings also indicate whether or not the publisher has a "paid access" option with direct links to the specific publisher policies on paid access
  • ROAD Directory of Open Access scholarly Resources : gives access to OA scholarly contents via a single access point. ROAD can be searched by country, subject, indexing/abstracting service etc.

OA articles can also often be found with a web search, using any general search engine or those specialised for the scholarly literature, such as OAIster and Google Scholar .

To find OA journals with a Journal Impact Factor in a specified discipline, use the Web of Science 

Are you in doubt of the quality of an Open Access journal? You can use Beall’s list (2016)  to exclude questionable, scholarly publishers or journals. 

Many funding agencies like the European Commission and the Dutch NWO organisation support OA. For a list of research funders' OA policies, consult SHERPA/Juliet .
