An agreement between Taylor & Francis and the VSNU (an association of 14 Dutch research organizations) means that researchers in the Netherlands can publish their articles gold open access at no cost to themselves. Once published, these articles will be available for anyone to read, anywhere.
Articles with corresponding authors based at a Dutch university or university medical center will be automatically published open access free of charge in around 2,300 Taylor & Francis and Routledge Open Select (hybrid) journals.
If a paper you’ve submitted to an Open Select journal is accepted for publication after peer review, you will receive an email asking you to choose an open access publishing agreement. Please go ahead and select the Creative Commons license of your choice. You will not need to pay an article publishing charge (APC) to make your article open access.
If you have any questions about the process, please do not hesitate to contact us.
This agreement covers new articles, with corresponding authors at Dutch universities and UMCs, published in Taylor & Francis Open Select (hybrid) journals. Use our Open access cost finder for the full list of journals offering this open access publishing option.
Some articles which are not original research papers, such as Editorials, Announcements, and Book Reviews, are not covered by this open access publishing agreement.
Articles published in Taylor & Francis Open journals aren’t currently covered by this agreement. However, many Dutch institutions have funding to support publishing in fully open access titles. Please talk to your librarian about the options available.
If your paper has a corresponding author based at a qualifying Dutch institution you don’t need to pay any charges to make your article open access. However, if the journal you are publishing in has separate costs, such as page charges or color charges, these will still apply.
If you wouldn’t like your article to be published open access, please contact [email protected] to confirm that you don’t want your paper to be included in the VSNU OA arrangement.
Researchers based at the following centers can benefit from this arrangement:
