University of Groningen Library Open Access How to publish open access

Creative Commons licences


Open access literature is published under public copyright licences (such as Creative Commons licences). By using a Creative Commons licence for your publication, you retain all of your rights, but give others permission to disseminate the work, share it with others and – with some licences – to edit the work. With a choice of six standard licences (available free of charge), you can determine the extent to which and under what terms and conditions your work may be further distributed.

It is entirely up to you to decide which licence you want to use for your publication. The UG does not have any mandatory requirements regarding licences. If you have any doubts about which licence to opt for, please contact us.
