TU/e Open Access Policy

As of 1 April 2015, authors at TU/e are requested to register all peer-reviewed journal articles and to submit the author accepted version (post-print) in the TU/e Repository. Authors need only to upload their publications. The Data Management and Library will facilitate the further Open Access process.

TU/e policy imposes no obligation on authors to publish Open Access. Authors retain their freedom in the choice of publishing outlet. In specific situations, authors may encounter Open Access obligations if the research was supported by external funding (fully or partially). Read more about funder Open Access policies. This policy is intended to make as many TU/e publications Open Access as possible at no charge via the TU/e Repository.
