The institutional membership of Cogitatio Press is part of the library’s support for Open Access in the humanities and social sciences.

Researchers of  VU and VUmc can publish Open Access free of charge in four journals; Media and Communication, Politics and Governance, Social Inclusion and Urban Planning.
Corresponding authors of the VU and VUmc are recognized based on their VU or VUmc e-mail address at submission and will receive confirmation that the OA publication fee is waived.

To encourage VU and VUmc researchers to publish Open Access, the University Library has made arrangements with several publishers offering VU and VUmc scientists a discount on publication costs, and in many cases the possibility of publishing Open Access free of charge. Currently more than 7700 journals are included in the agreements, of which more than 4,000 titles have an impact factor with more than 1,000 in the 1st quartile. Details can be found on the website of the University Library.
