Open Access in the Netherlands

IOP Publishing (IOP) has transformative agreements with a number of Dutch institutions which enables researchers to publish their work on an open access basis at no additional cost in the majority of IOP and society partner hybrid journals. The agreement balances the cost of hybrid article publication charges (APCs) against journal license fees for 2020 onwards.

All corresponding (submitting) authors at subscribing Dutch institutions (below) can publish in eligible journals on an open access basis without barriers, without additional cost, and be certain that they comply to any open access requirement. Research articles (letters, papers, reviews and special issue articles) accepted for publication after 1 Jan 2020 may be eligible for inclusion.

How to take advantage of the agreement

This process applies to all primary research article types, including  Letters, Papers, Reviews and Special Issue articles.

1. Submission
The corresponding (submitting) author must be affiliated with a subscribing institution (listed below). When you submit your article please supply your affiliation clearly in the article submission form and in the article itself. Please also acknowledge any research funding if asked during submission as well as in the manuscript itself.

2. Identification
If your article is identified you will be notified during the peer-review process or shortly after acceptance, and your paper will automatically be opted in to open access. You’ll be asked to agree to the CC-BY open access license. If you wish to opt out please do so within five days of identification.

3. Acceptance and Publication
Your paper will be published open access under a CC-BY license at no cost to you. You can share it as you wish and the article will comply with funder mandates.

If you have not been alerted before your article is accepted, please contact the journal to ensure that your work is included in the arrangement.
