Open access policy within UG and UMCG

31 March 2023

The University of Groningen (UG) and the University Medical Center (UMCG) consider open access publishing a priority. They aim to further encourage it among the academic community and make it simple and feasible in every discipline. To realise this ambition, the Board of the University launches an Open Access Policy.

The policy does not introduce new requirements for UG- and UMCG-affiliated authors. It rather explains the available publishing options for researchers and crystallises existing practices.

The policy presents different routes for the open access publishing of academic journal articles, book chapters and books, including the UG’s regulations for archiving articles in Pure and provides funding instruments such as the UG’s open access book fund and the diamond open access fund.

The policy is accompanied by a decision tree illustrating the available routes to open access for UG and UMCG authors.

The policy is a deliverable of the UG Open Science Programme. “With the adoption of the Open Access Policy, another milestone of the UG’s strategic plan is reached in making open practices an integral part of the UG’s research and teaching”, says Vera Heininga, programme leader of the Open Science Programme.
