Open Access Week 2018

by | 22 Oct 2018

This week (22-26 October) is International Open Access Week.

In more than 100 countries around the world, extra attention is given to open access related issues this week.


In the Netherlands, a number of open access / open science activities are organised in and around this week. For an overview of events, please visit, the Dutch open access website in which we participate.

At Maastricht University, we will pay extra attention to updating the Open Access portal and we will report on current open access issues, such as cOAlitionS, predatory publishers, APC, paywalls, copyright, and ORCID. We are open to your suggestions.


Tell us which open access related topics you want to know more about.

Or where more support is needed.
