Last month the 100,000th Open Access publication by a WUR author was made available in NARCIS. WUR maintains a strong Open Access policy and it’s now the first university in the Netherlands with more than 100,000 Open Access publications in NARCIS.



The WUR's 100,000th Open Access publication is the peer-reviewed article Non-targeted identification of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances at trace level in surface water using fragment ion flagging by former WUR student Thijs Hensema and WUR researchers Bjorn Berendsen and Stefan van Leeuwen. The authors received a special attention from WUR Library to celebrate this achievement.


NARCIS is the national portal to look for information about researchers and their work. The database contains publications, data sets, research projects and people from Dutch research organisations. In the NARCIS database you can now find more than 900,000 publications, freely available to everyone. From WUR 24,000 peer-reviewed journal articles, 39,000 reports, 15,000 contributions to periodicals, 7,500 theses and more than 15,000 other publication types are available Open Access.
