Published on
January 12, 2021

On 12 October 2020, the Executive Board updated the WUR Open Access policy. All WUR authors are either required or encouraged to publish all types of scientific work Open Access whenever possible.

The Executive Board of Wageningen University & Research has decided to adopt the refined WUR Open Access publication policy. This has consequences for various publication options.

Refereed articles

Open Access publishing is required when you as WUR employee

  • are the corresponding author;
  • are the author of an article funded by a research funder requiring Open Access. Funder requirements take precedence over the WUR Open Access policy.

Open Access publishing is encouraged if you are a non-corresponding author.

Please consult the WUR Journal Browser to select a suitable journal to publish your article Open access.

Conference publications and PhD theses

Read more about the renewed policy for other publication types, such as conference proceedings and the procedure for PhD theses on the page WUR Open Access policy.

If you have questions about the procedures, feel free to contact WUR Open Access Support.

Important note

WUR Library is currently updating the Open Access webpages. The information will be available by the end of January 2021.
