Nieuw: ComponentThe University Library has entered an Institutional Membership with Open Access publisher Frontiers. This means that VU/ VUmc researchers can publish without Article Processing Charges costs in these journals. All researchers affiliated with the VU and the VUmc can publish free of charge in 59 full open access Frontiers journals from 1 January 2018. Please note that this applies to items that have been submitted since 1 January 2018.

How does it work?
The corresponding author can select 'VU University Amsterdam' or 'VU Medical Center' during submission of the manuscript from a drop-down box. All APC costs are then paid by the library.
