Open Access by Self-Archiving

Implementing art. 25fa Aw
All Dutch universities and university medical centers and the National Platform Open Science decided to give an extra boost to open access by supporting a broad implementation of this law. The UMCG has decided to implement this amendment Taverne, whereby publications by UMCG authors are automatically made available through the institutional repository (Pure) six months after their first publication in a journal or edited book.

Please note: Social network platforms (such as ResearchGate or Academia.edu) are ideal for social networking, where you can improve your visibility. But these platforms are unsuitable for sharing papers in a sustainable or legal way. This includes articles that have been made open access available under the Taverne amendment.

You can send the questions you have to openaccess@umcg.nl. 
If you are approached by a publisher about one of your open access publications, we recommend that you contact the CMB at this address. The CMB/UMCG will respond to the publisher. You do not have to do that yourself.

Please not
For more information on the implementation, see the CMB intranet pages (accessible for UMCG employees only)

Green Open Access

The 'old' policy of Green Open Access by depositing your article to the library is no longer applicable. Usually the 'Accepted Author Manuscript (AAM)' (post-print, final author's version etc.) can be made publicly available after a 12 month embargo. The Taverne embargo (see box above) is 6 months and with that the version of record (publisher's version) is made available. Therefore the current policy is aimed at making publications open access via the Taverne amendment.

There can be some exceptions: Some journals permit the immediate depositing of the AAM into a repository. If that is the case then we can make it publicly available right away. 

For questions or if you want to know how long the embargo period will be, contact pure@umcg.nl
