Springer Nature open access deal: annual quota reached

25 October 2021

According to the agreement between Springer Nature and the VSNU (Association of Universities in the Netherlands), Dutch corresponding authors are allowed to publish up to 2,080 open access articles per year without additional article processing charges (APC).

Due to the popularity of the deal, the national annual quota of 2,080 publications will be reached this week (week 43). This means that the deal is suspended and UG/UMCG articles will no longer be eligible for the usual 100% discount on the open access fee. Depending on the outcome of the new round of negotiations with Springer Nature, Dutch corresponding authors may be able to use the new allocation of OA fee waivers as of 1 January 2022.

Please note: affected authors will be contacted on an individual basis by the open access team and will be provided with additional information on the options available to them.
