"Open access allows scientific publications of Dutch universities to be globally accessible. Freely sharing research results advances science and contributes to the dissemination and visibility of Dutch research."
"Publicly funded research must be accessible to everyone. At the same time, in many fields of science, valuable publishing channels exist that are not based on a business revenue model. We must therefore jointly ensure that the principle of Open Access can be realized across the entire breadth of science, taking into account relevant differences."
