New deals for access to scientific journals and open access publishing

28 February 2022

Early 2022, the UKB consortium renewed a number of 'read and publish' contracts with major publishers. Through these deals, the Dutch university community and the academic hospitals have access to many thousands of scientific journals, as well as the right to publish open access in the journals for which licenses have been agreed upon at no extra cost. This makes the results of scientific research accessible to everyone worldwide without barriers.

The deals concern these publishers:

  • American Chemical Society (ACS)
  • Brill
  • IOS Press
  • Karger
  • Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC)
  • Sage
  • Springer
  • Thieme
  • Amsterdam University Press (AUP)
  • American Institute of Physics (AIP)
  • British Medical Journal (BMJ)
