No agreement between VSNU and Oxford University Press

Dinsdag, 9 mei 2017

The universities in the Netherlands and Oxford University Press (OUP) have been unable to reach a new agreement for access to academic journals. The key priority in the negotiations for VSNU (the Association of Universities in the Netherlands) was facilitating the transition to open access – freely accessible articles – without Dutch scholars having to pay double to make them available in this way. OUP made a proposal to the Dutch universities which did not include an offer for affordable open access. The research universities in the Netherlands are unable to agree to this.
