New agreements on reuse of copyrighted material in your teaching

Universities of the Netherlands (UNL) and Stichting UvO (Publishing Organisation for Education Licences) have reached a new agreement about reuse of copyrighted material in education, covering the period 2023-2025.

A major change is that lecturers are allowed to include a maximum of 40 pages in their publications, if it is up to 20 % of the original work. This agreement is part of the Easy Access Agreement in which is laid down that universities pay a fixed fee for the reuse of material. The other agreements will be announced at a later stage.
