Radboud University publishing house to start up in September

Affordable open-access publishing? That will be available to scientists in Nijmegen, from September on, when the Radboud University Press opens its doors. It will be starting small, but library director Natalia Grygierczyk is hoping for a flywheel effect.

Radboud University Press – and similar initiatives at other universities, including those of Delft and Groningen – need to offer a much cheaper, fully digital alternative to the commercial parties. 

We contract out the practical publication work, such as editing and layout, for all types of publications. For the technology, we make use of a special Open Journals Platform which we’ve set up nationally, with funding from NWO. Multiple universities will be using it.
