For almost 5000 of the ca 30,000 journals to which the UvA Library has a subscription, an open-access agreement has been signed. UvA researchers can publish in these journals, often with 100% reduction, so that anyone has access.

To check if UvA has an agreement with the publisher of a specific journal, search the E-journals list by title, subject or ISSN. Click the title and the UvA-linker pops up. Journals for which there is an open-access agreement have, at the bottom of the UvA-linker window, the text UvA open access agreement (see example).

An up-to-date survey of journals in which researchers of Dutch universities and Academic Medical Centres can publish in open access freely or with a reduction, can be found via Not all titles in this list hold for UvA. And some titles for which UvA has an agreement are missing.
