When you publish your research results open access, anyone with an Internet connection can read it free of charge. The peer-review process is the same as for traditional publishing, but the author – and not the publisher – is the copyright holder and gets to decide how to share the article after it is published. These advantages of open-access publishing increase your work's visibility, downloads, citations, and impact.
For future publications, please check out the UT Journal Browser. It lets you search for terms in journal title and scope, and select journals based on costs for open-access publishing. As a submitting UT author, you can now publish open access at no cost in over 20.000 scientific journals.
Did you publish behind a paywall? Then you can probably use your personal right according to the Dutch Copyright Act to open up the final published version of your article in UT Research Information, 6 months after its first publication online.
