Agreement with Elsevier on list of open-access journals
The Dutch universities and Elsevier have reached an agreement on the package of journals in which researchers can publish open access without extra cost.
The journal list was drawn up on the basis of an extensive analysis. Subject domains with a relatively mature open-access culture were looked at and the distribution focuses on a limited number of different domains to prevent fragmentation and administrative load.
VSNU has provided answers to a number of questions regarding the selection.
