Each month, the open access team of the University of Groningen Library (UB) puts a recent open access article by UG authors in the spotlight. This publication is highlighted via social media and the library’s newsletter and website.
Article in the spotlight for December 2020
Gold, silver or bronze: circadian variation strongly affects performance in Olympic athletes, written by Renske Lok, Marijke Gordijn, Domien Beersma and Roelof Hut (from the Chronobiology Unit at the Groningen Institute for Evolutionary Life Sciences, Faculty of Science & Engineering) together with Giulia Zerbini (University of Augsburg).
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.
