Take part in You share, we take care

In 2019, the University Library started the project “You share we take care”. So far 324 VU researchers are now participating. What do we take care of for VU researchers who participate? If you participate, the University Library will automatically deposit all your published PDF-versions of your academic publications in the VU Research Portal six months after the first publication date. Since the start of the project in 2019, around 900 articles have been made Open Access.

Significantly more academic and social attention
Analysis shows that Open Access publications receive significantly more academic and social attention than publications 'behind a paywall'. You can reach a wide audience faster. Together we are working towards 100% open access.

OA agreements
In order to stimulate Open Access publishing, the VU has also concluded OA agreements ("OA deals") with a large number of publishers.
