Publishing open access

How do you know if you can publish open access in a specific journal?

  • By using the national Open Access browser you can check for specific journals if a discount is available.
    Note: you can search by subject, for example: pathol*. You can select 'Deal available for RUG' (on the left).
  • On the CMB open access site you can read the agreements with the publishers.
    You do not have to pay author fee (APC) for open access publishing or you will get a discount.
  • Always submit your article using a University or UMCG computer.
  • To be recognized as a member always use your work email from the University or the UMCG!


If the publisher is not on the CMB open access site what are the possibilities to publish open access?

  • Sometimes you can pay for publishing the article in open access. You can read on the publisher’s website if that is possible. The author is charged with a fee, called article processing charges (APC’s) for publishing an article.
