Green Open Access

You Share, We Take Care!

Dutch copyright law (art. 25fa Auteurswet) allows you to deposit the publishers’ version (PDF) of short academic work in the university repository six months after the first (online) publication. The VU University Library can now support VU researchers who want to make their publications accessible in the VU Research Portal. If you have an employment contract with VU the library can automatically deposit published PDF-versions (Version of Record) of your academic publications on your behalf in the VU Research Portal.
