NWO will make 500,000 euros a year available for the open access publication of books. Next to that, NWO helps to realize the start of the open access journals platform Openjournals.nl with a three-year project grant.
NWO wants to step up its efforts to make the academic books that result from its funding Open access as well. That is why NWO will make 500,000 euros a year available for the Open access publication of books from 1 June 2020 onwards. Applications - with a limit of 10,000 euros per publication – for this ‘Open Access Books’ call for proposals can be submitted throughout the year as long as the budget lasts.
On 1 July, the KNAW Humanities Cluster will begin the design and construction of an open access journals platform, Openjournals.nl. The platform aims to offer a solution for independent Dutch academic journals. Openjournals.nl offers them a low-threshold route to becoming Open Access. The realization of this platform is possible thanks to a three-year project grant from NWO. The platform is expected to go live at the end of 2020.
