The VSNU and Taylor & Francis Group have reached an agreement on open access. The new licence package for 2016 and 2017 means that corresponding authors connected with a Dutch institution will be able to publish OA free of charge in all Taylor & Francis and Routledge hybrid journals in the Taylor & Francis Open Select portfolio.
Full open access applies to all corresponding authors at Dutch universities and UMCs. There will be no additional cost to individual researchers in connection with the open access publishing of their articles. For readers, the number of titles covered by the agreement with Taylor & Francis will be reduced somewhat in comparison with previous years. An overview of those journals covered by the agreement, a dedicated publishers webpage and detailed workflow will be published as soon as possible.
