Updates on accessibility
The universities in the Netherlands (VSNU) and Oxford University Press (OUP) have been unable to reach a new agreement for access to academic journals. As a result, OUP will end access to journal articles published from 1 May 2017 onwards, for all Dutch universities and UMCs. This will presumably take place by the end of May. Articles published in previous years and in the period January to April 2017 will remain accessible.
On this page, we will keep you informed about the developments regarding the ceased negotiations and alternatives for access to the OUP articles from May onwards.
This page will be frequently updated. Stay informed and subscribe (below) to our Library+ Research update.
