The UG open access book fund turns one!

16 February 2023
OA book fund

In February 2022, the University of Groningen introduced an open access book fund. To mark the fund’s first anniversary, we share some information about the number of applications received and a list of published open access books sponsored by the fund.

So far, the fund has received 35 applications (since February 2022): 7 books have been finalized and published, while one request has been rejected, one was withdrawn and the remaining 26 are still in progress or pending approval.

UG- and UMCG-affiliated authors can apply for a maximum of €8,000 to support the publication of their open access monographs or edited volumes. The fund will run until August 2023. The continuation of the fund beyond August 2023 is conditional on funding renewal by the UG/UMCG.
