Publishing Support

Open science and research impact are high on the research agenda and this calls for an adjustment of the traditional ways of academic publishing. UB Publishing Supports helps you in this. A multidisciplinary team of experts is available to provide you with information, tools and advice.

We support Utrecht University researchers and research groups in finding a fitting publication strategy that results in a large (academic) outreach.

How do we help you to publish with impact?

Nowadays academic publishing no longer only revolves around publishing articles in journals with a high impact factor. Thanks to the open science movement academic output has gained in diversity, think of data, software and video, and the emphasis has shifted to openly sharing. Besides, the increasing demand from society for impact, influences the way in which academic output is measured and valued.

These developments raise many new questions. For instance, how do you, as a researcher or research group, publish with impact while at the same time meeting open science criteria?
