Libraries at polytechnicals go green

The Alliance Polytechnical Libraries (SHB) focuses on the 'green route' for open access publishing. This way they hope to achieve their scientific publications to be 100% open access in 2020, one of the objectives in the National Plan Open Science.

This decision was made based on the results of the seminar "Open Access we do together." The publications are made freely accessible via a repository and get a Creative Commons license, so reuse is possible worldwide. This accounts for publications of both researchers and students of the polytechnicals.

The SHB will make concrete arrangements with publishers about including their publications open access in the HBO Knowledge Base. They explicitly reach out for cooperation with other Dutch scientific organizations.

More information is available in the SHB vision document (only in Dutch).
