  • Open Access: Green, Gold & Self-Publishing: do you want your academic article to be findable and readable by the largest possible audience? Find out about the many ways you can publish open access, and how we can support you, for instance with our Open Access Fund, or Self-Publishing a book or journal?
  • Open Education: Why not share educational material (textbooks, audio, and video) and make it reusable for other lecturers and students, instead of developing the same course over and over again? Maybe you are even considering creating a MOOC (Massive Online Open Course)? We like to show you the possibilities we offer.
  • Open Data: Open Data is a raw material for the digital age but, unlike coal, timber or diamonds, it can be used by anyone and everyone at the same time.
