New: Open Access Publication in the Spotlight

02 September 2020

This month, the University of Groningen Library launches a new initiative: the open access publication in the spotlight. Each month, the library’s open access team will select a recent publication by UG authors that was published open access. This publication is highlighted via e.g., the social media, newsletters and the Open Science Blog.

Article in the spotlight for September 2020

In our Open Science Blog, the authors reflect on their motivation to publish open access, their choice to pick a specific journal and their experiences with open access and open science in general.


Middel, F., López López, M., Fluke, J., & Grietens, H. (2020). The effects of migrant background and parent gender on child protection decision-making: An intersectional analysis. Child Abuse & Neglect, 104.

About Open Access in the Spotlight

The initiative wishes to emphasize the relevance of open access publishing for the visibility of research and to acknowledge open science best practices at the same time. Authors are given the opportunity to speak about their motives to publish open access and their experience with it. Publications from all UG faculties will be included.
