We'd like to invite you for a lunch meeting on 24 November in Impulse on the possibilities, and the pros and cons of Open Access publishing.

This lunch meeting is organised by Science Group AFSG and Wageningen University & Research - Library.

With Open Access, the possibilities to disseminate your research are quickly growing. The European Union and the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research NWO are now mandating Open Access publishing for projects they fund. Find out what your possibilities are for publishing Open Access. This lunch meeting will give you the latest update on practical issues that are relevant for AFSG staff and PhD candidates.

Venue: Speakers Corner/Impulse
