UG/UMCG open access policy

Open access means free, immediate and permanent access to academic publications. By publishing your research open access under an open licence, you enable readers to access, distribute and reuse the material freely.

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

Routes to make your article open access available

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