Open Access

The Centre for Digital Scholarship is dedicated to support Open Access publishing by means of policy, training, support, and services available to all researchers of Leiden University.

Open Access provides direct, free and online availability of research output without copyright restrictions by publishers. By removing all barriers to access and permission, it increases the visibility of a publication enormously.

We strongly encourage researchers to publish Open Access via the Gold route by  taking advantage of the numerous deals we have with high quality scientific publishers; if the journal of your choice is not part of any agreement, we offer you the opportunity of Open Access via the Green route by uploading your publication via  LUCRIS/the Leiden repository.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at cds@library.leidenuniv.nl.
