Agreements with publishers
Leiden researchers are entitled to take part in deals regarding Open Access that have been arranged with a substantial number of publishers.
Journal title list: Open Access deals
The national Open Access Portal publishes a list of 9000 journal titles to which an agreement on Open Access applies. The list mentions possibilities for (considerable) discounts and is periodically updated. The title list is a recent service, but also the result of work in progress. No rights may be derived from information on the list.
The Journal Browser shows all possibilities per journal to publish Open Access.
How to enroll?
To ensure participation:
- Use you Leiden affliation and email address
- When asked, make sure you indicate that you DO want to publish Open Access
- When in doubt about workflow, charges or anything else, ask for help at firstname.lastname@example.org

Via the non-profit organisation Knowledge Unlatched libraries can share the costs for the open access publishing of monographs. This model does not require authors or their institutions to finance the publication. As soon as the required number of consortium libraries show their interest, the monograph will be made open access.
By means of this cooperative participation, libraries create a sustainable model for open access books.
Participating publishers are among others: Brill, Cambridge University Press, University of Michigan Press and in particular Language Science Press.
UBL supports Knowledge Unlatched.
