Maastricht University and Open Access

Maastricht University embraces the concepts of open access and open science to further strengthen the connections with our environment regionally, nationally and internationally.

Open Access also contributes to our international societal engagement. Open access publications can be used in education without any restrictions. Sharing research results under open-access arrangements is all about creating value for society at large.

The Executive Board is proud of the scholarship and science being conducted at our university. Of course, we want to share it with the world. The larger the audience, the greater the impact our work will have. Making research output Open Access empowers fair sharing of scientific evidence amongst all stakeholders contributing to the advancement of science and society. So, therefore, we call upon everyone: Open Up to Open Access!

Maastricht University Library and Open Access

Universal Open Access creates the rocket fuel that is essential to undertake cross-cutting investigations to accelerate scientific discovery, strengthen communities, and improve human health and well being.

For PhD candidates, the Dutch negotiations with publishers have made it possible to publish Open Access more easily and without costs. We do research in the public interest and are very excited to make our results freely accessible. By publishing Open Access, we can make our work more visible and thereby increase its impact!
