The new Open Access Journal Browser

Published on 26 Oct 2021

This morning we launched our branded and revised UM/MUMC+ Open Access Journal Browser. Use the Journal Browser to find all relevant Open Access and APC discount information from the national deals and local arrangements with publishers. And with additional links to local support and publishing knowledge, the Journal Browser is your primary source for planning your publications. 

What is the Open Access Journal Browser?

The UM/MUMC+ Journal Browser is a tool specially developed for researchers. You can search for journals to publish Open Access at no or reduced costs.

The UM/MUMC+ Journal Browser contains data for over 35,000 journals. More than 22,000 journals with Open Access agreements: both journal deals involved national arrangements and agreements explicitly made for Maastricht University. Among others, there are agreements with Elsevier, Springer and Wiley.

Combining this and other information (see below), the UM/MUMC+ Journal Browser provides an accessible overview of options to help you publish Open Access.
