The Springer Open Choice agreement with the Dutch universities has been terminated!
The ‘Open Choice’-agreement that was made between Springer and all Dutch universities has been terminated. The agreement with Springer entailed that all authors affiliated with a Dutch university did not have to pay for open access publishing with Springer. This agreement with Springer has been terminated. If an author wishes to publish an article that has been accepted after July 1st, 2012 as Open Choice, the author or his/her financer must pay the fee themselves. The agreement does still apply to articles accepted by Springer before July 1st, 2012!
