Open access discount agreements

It happens that Utrecht University and UMC Utrecht authors unnecessarily pay the publication fees themselves. That is why it is worth your while to check if the UU discount agreements are applicable to you.

Big Deals

Maybe the journal in which you publish is part of a Big Deal: national agreements the Universiteiten van Nederland (Association of Universities in the Netherlands) has reached with several major publishers. The agreements facilitate free open access publishing and/or offer discounts. Sometimes the agreements cover all journals of a publisher, sometimes only a selection.
