The EUR Open Access policy
From January 2011 EUR- and Erasmus MC-researchers are obliged to deliver their final author' s version of their publications in digital format to the EUR Repository RePub.

The best moment to do this is when you send your final author’s version (the accepted version, after the peer review) to the publisher.
There are three ways to deliver your publication:
To be able to process the publication efficiently, you have to give your publication a titlepage, with this information:
- e-mail address of the EUR author who deposits the publication
- faculty, research group, etc. of the EUR author who deposits the publication journal in which the publication will appear (if applicable)
- abstract (if not available in the running text)
- keywords (if not available in the running text)
What happens next?
Your publication is uploaded to the repository. RePub will check what options are available for your publication, what the publishers allows and the copyright laws that are applicable. RePub will maintain the relationship between your final author's version and the corresponding publisher's version by placing a link on the web to the website of the journal. Your publication will receive an unique and permanent URL, the so-called handle, which you can use to refer to your publication.
If desired and applicable, RePub can forward your publication for placement in the large international discipline-specific repositories like SSRN and RePEc. For publications from Erasmus MC, RePub will take action to make the EUR Open Access version of the publication visible in PubMed.
