Open access Deals and discounts

Deals and discounts


Thanks to a series of agreements between the Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU) and major academic publishers, submitting authors affiliated with the UG and the UMCG can publish their articles open access in thousands of journals for free (100% discount) or with significant discounts on Article Processing Charges (APCs).

N.B. The UG does not have an open access fund at the moment. Authors are responsible for covering the costs of open access publication in journals that are not part of these agreements.

How to make use of the agreements:

  • Check the Journal Browser for an overview of the open access discounts available to you.
  • Use your UG/UMCG email address during the submission process.
  • Select open access after acceptance and choose a Creative Commons licence.
  • Consult for information on each publisher’s submission procedures.

In addition to the VSNU agreements, the UG and the UMCG have negotiated a series of agreements in their own right.
