  1. All information is given in both Dutch and English.

  3. It’s easy to contact the editorial team if you have a question or comment. On weekdays, they will respond quickly to your questions.
  4. There are a wide range of options when it comes to sharing information via social media. These are prominently displayed on the new site.
  5. The site is responsive, which means that you can use it on your smartphone or other small screen.
  6. Click on ‘In the Netherlands’ – ‘Current situation’ for an overview of all recent major developments to do with open access.
