As of 1 January 2017, University Groningen and UMCG researchers are asked to deposit full-text versions of their peer-reviewed articles in Pure. The University of Groningen Library and the Central Medical Library
will handle the import of the publications to Pure and all other necessary steps and support.
The University of Groningen and the UMCG strive to make the scientific output of their researchers accessible through open access, especially though the so-called green road. This is in keeping with the Dutch national policy and the requirements of various research funding organisations, but also with the positive effects green open access has for citation scores and the impact of publications.
The Board of the University and the Board of Directors of the UMCG thus decided to ask researchers to deposit the final author’s version of their peer-reviewed article in the University’s research database Pure from 1 January 2017 on. The workflow asks little effort from researchers; most of the realisation is being handled by the University of Groningen Library.
To ensure depositing costs as little time and effort as possible, the Library advises authors to fill in the online form. Depositing an article takes less than 1 minute.
The UG Library and Central Medical Library will subsequently take care of the legal requirements (embargo deadlines etc.) issued by the publisher concerning the open access publishing of the archived article.
