Through Open Access, research results from around the world are freely accessible to all. It is an incentive for exchanging and utilising knowledge and fresh insights between scientists, companies and social institutions. The University Library supports students with Open Access publishing.
Research results are published in scientific journals, which often have high subscription costs. Leiden University believes that the removal of this threshold will beneficit both science and society. Moreover, most research is funded with public money. Agreements have therefore been concluded with publishers, and Leiden scientists are encouraged to publish in Open Access.
