'Open Access is not a dogma for me, but a way to spread scientific information - publications, data and software - more effectively than by using the payment model. Sometimes there are good reasons to protect certain information. For research data applies the principle: Open if possible, protected if necessary.'


Prof. Dr.
Chairman of the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO)
NWO The Hague

"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."
