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. 

These agreements 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.

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.

Ensure your participation
The actions required to benefit from a waiver on Article Processing Charges differ per publisher and sometimes also per journal. For an overview of the workflow go to Publisher’s Workflows. 

What you should always do:

  • Take on the role of submitting corresponding author;
  • Always use your EUR email address when corresponding with the publisher;
  • Indicate in the submission process that you wish to publish Open Access.
