News and developments

National open access website
A national website provides news items, information on recent developments and background stories related to open access. 
The site informs the (inter)national research community on recent developments in open access in the Netherlands. Foreign news relevant to the Dutch community is covered as well. The site also gives scholars who wish to publish open access practical advice. The site's approach is an ideological one, emphasizing the advantages of open access for academia.
