Open Science and open access

Open science is the practice of science in such a way that others can collaborate and contribute, where research data, lab notes and other research processes are freely available, under terms that enable reuse, redistribution and reproduction of the research and its underlying data and methods. Radboudumc agrees with international developments concerning open science. See the National Plan Open Science. Open Access is an important part of Open Science. Open Access of publications provides direct, free and online access to scientific publications without copyright restrictions of publishers. Open Access significantly increases the visibility of a publication. Current Radboudumc guidelines regarding Open Access publishing are in order of priority:
  1. In case you have funding for article processing charges (APC), and there is a good open access candidate journal for your paper, submit your paper to this open access journal
  2. In other cases, and for the time being, submit your paper to a classical journal that waives the APC for corresponding authors from Dutch universities (see www.openaccess.nl)
  3. If there is no good candidate journal that waives the APC, search for a good alternative open access journal (and pay the APC)
  4. If there is no good alternative open access journal, as a last option, choose a classical journal and pay APC to make your paper open access.
For future publications, make sure you include costs for APC in the budget of your grant proposals.  
The UBN provides advice about open access
