Policy on 'Green open access' as of 1 January 2017

Deposit the final author’s version of your peer-reviewed article and make your research accessible for everyone

As of 1 January 2017, UG and UMCG researchers are asked to deposit full-text versions of their peer-reviewed articles in Pure. The University of Groningen Library and the Central Medical Library will handle the import of the publications to Pure and all other necessary steps and support.

The University of Groningen and the UMCG strive to make the scientific output of their researchers accessible through open access, especially though the so-called green road. This is in keeping with the Dutch national policy and the requirements of various research funding organisations, but also with the positive effects green open access has for citation scores and the impact of publications.

The  Board of the University and the Board of Directors of the UMCG thus decided to ask researchers to deposit the final author’s version of their peer-reviewed article in the University’s research database Pure from 1 January 2017 on. The workflow asks little effort from researchers; most of the realisation is being handled by the University of Groningen Library.

What is asked from you?

  • Every UG and UMCG researcher that is (co-)author of an article published in a peer-reviewed journal is asked to deposit his or her article in Pure.

  • Depositing takes places as soon as possible upon acceptance of the article (immediate deposit on acceptance). The UG Library will handle the import of the publication to Pure.

  • The version that is deposited is a PDF of the final author’s version following the peer review.
    Please note: Other publications than peer-reviewed articles are beyond the scope of this policy.
    You are free to register these publications in Pure.

  • When depositing an article, you also submit metadata (P-number or UG-/UMCG-email address, journal name).

  • The UG Library and Central Medical Library will subsequently take care of the legal requirements (embargo deadlines etc.) issued by the publisher concerning the open access publishing of the archived article (optional - and controlled- access).

How do you deposit an article?

To ensure depositing costs you as little time and effort as possible, we advise you to fill in the online form. Depositing an article takes less than 1 minute.

You can also mail your article or deposit it directly in Pure.
