Dutch research institutions and Elsevier: 1 May update

by | Published on 01 May 2020

VSNU, NFU, NWO and Elsevier have agreed on a brief extension to finalise the agreement. For Maastricht University and MUMC+, this means that we continue to have access to all online Elsevier journals and that researchers do not pay APC for OA publishing in Elsevier journals until further notice.

Open Science services agreement

VSNU, NFU, NWO and Elsevier are pleased to update that they are in the final stages of signing a new Open Science services agreement, which is the first of its kind in the world. Given the unprecedented global health crisis, the partners have agreed on a brief extension to the original 1st May date to finalise the agreement.
