Developments in Open Science in the Netherlands

The Netherlands has been frontrunner in the transition to Open Science.

The Dutch government has mandated all universities to have 100% Open Access to academic publications by 2024 and has recently broadened its scope to research data. These plans can only succeed by national cooperation of all parties involved.

Getting published is just the first step…

Getting academic output published is a great accomplishment for any researcher but it’s not the end of the story.
