1 January 2019 the agreement concerning access and open access publishing between the Dutch universities and the publisher Elsevier will come to an end.

The VSNU has recently started negotiations with Elsevier for a new agreement. It is important to the VSNU that researchers working for the universities can easily share their (publicly funded) scientific articles as openly as possible with anyone who is interested.
