Publisher Deals

Researchers at Erasmus University Rotterdam can benefit from the many agreements that VSNU and the consortium of Dutch university libraries have concluded with publishers.

Within the available Library budget agreements are concluded that enable EUR researchers* to publish in high-quality journals for free or at a discount. Currently, more than 11,000 magazines are covered by these publisher agreements. Keep in mind that only (submitting) corresponding authors can claim the waiver that is offered by a publisher deal. So, make sure this role is assigned to an EUR-researcher when opting for a journal that is part of a publisher deal.

* Corresponding authors who are teaching and research staff employed by Erasmus University (incl. ISS) or Erasmus MC.

Erasmus Journal Browser

The Erasmus Journal Browser is useful tool to find out in which journals you can publish for free or against reduced rates. The Journal Browser is periodically updated, but no rights may be derived from its contents.
