Update: The road to 100% Open Access
Erasmus University’s policy is that scientific articles are to be published in Open Access. This means that all EUR researchers have to publish in Open Access. The Library supports researchers in various ways with publishing in Open Access.
Erasmus Open Access Fund
Earlier this year the University Library set up the Erasmus Open Access Fund, an incentive fund for scientists who want to publish in Golden Open Access. Since its introduction many funding requests have been made and the first expense claims have been honoured and paid out.
An equally large number of requests could be satisfied by referral to information in the Journal Browser. This tool identifies publications whose copyright costs (Article Processing Charges) for publication in Open Access have been paid by the university thus reducing claims on the Erasmus Open Access Fund.
This means that funds are still available. Check the site to see how you can qualify.
Workshop Publishing in Open Access
The Young Researchers Career Day will be held on April 19 and the Open Access team will give a workshop on publishing in Open Access. This workshop aims to increase your knowledge about how publication in Open Access affects publication impact by increasing visibility and findability.
Register for the Career Day (after log in at MyEUR)
