Governments, research funders and universities aim to make the results of publicly funded research accessible online to all: in this way, society as a whole can benefit from scientific developments and researchers reach a wider audience and increase the visibility and impact of their work.
To accelerate the transition to open access, a group of research funders, including NWO, joined forces in cOAltionS. cOAltion S launched PlanS a few years ago, with stricter open access requirements for research funded by this group. At the Centre for Digital Scholarship, a part of Leiden University Libraries, we provide practical tips to authors who want (or need) to publish open access. Topics covered include budgeting of a project application, deals with publishers, diamond journals, the use of preprint servers, and open access uploading in Leiden University's Scholarly Publications Repository (including the use of the Taverne Amendment).
At a policy level, we monitor where we are in the transition to open access. We look at the numbers, but also at the consequences of this transition for authors and institutions.
