How to publish open access
There are different ways to publish your research open access.
Gold open access: You publish in a fully open access journal that does not charge subscription fees for reading access. Gold open access journals usually charge a publication fee, also known as an Article Processing Charge (APC).
Hybrid open access: You publish in a traditional subscription journal that offers open access publication for individual articles on payment of an Article Processing Charge (APC).
Green open access: You publish in a closed access journal and then make a version of your publication available in an institutional repository, such as Pure at the University of Groningen.
Diamond open access: You publish in a fully open access journal or platform that does not charge any publication fees (APCs).
Use these step-by-step guides to publish your research open access.
