Dutch universities have signed a so-called S2O deal with two publishers: Annual Reviews and Amsterdam University Press (AUP). S2O means Subscribe to Open. The journals of these two publishers become open access on the basis of subscription fees, which continue to be paid by the University Libraries and other organisations.
Duration of the deals
The deal with AUP runs until 31 December 2024. The deal with Annual Reviews started a year later and also runs for three years; until 31 December 2025. Scientific authors from Dutch universities and UMCs can publish open access with these two publishers at no extra cost.
