Free open access publishing with Emerald

For 2019, the maximum number of open access publications has been reached. For the remainder of the year, the costs of open access publications cannot be covered by the agreement between VSNU and Emerald.

In 2017 Emerald Publishing Group has agreed to make up to 30 articles of corresponding authors from TU/e and other Dutch academic institutions open access free of charge. In 2018, up to 45 articles from Dutch corresponding authors will be made open access. Publications in all Emerald periodicals are eligible and are made open access on a 'first come, first served' basis.
