About openjournals.nl


Openjournals provides the infrastructure for all types of peer-reviewed journals to publish in open access - from internationally renowned journals to more regional specialised publications, the only condition is that journals agree not to charge authors any fees (i.e. APCs).


The platform runs open OJS3, the industry standard in open source publication software. The platform is managed in-house by the KNAW Humanities Cluster, a non-profit scientific organisation. In this way, openjournals guarantees a professional and sustainable open access publishing model for a competitive price.


Openjournals offers full transparency from an organizational, technical and financial point of view. Member journals pay a fixed annual contribution to host their journal on the platform. Openjournals maintains a professional platform without article processing costs (APCs), subscription obligations or binding contracts, based on a non-APC open access model.

For whom?

Openjournals is designed for all journals that are scholarly, peer-reviewed and operate with a sustainable non-APC open access publication model. For journals that strive for this model we are happy to facilitate the transition. Language of publication, readership, university affiliation or publisher are not an obstacle to publishing through openjournals. The platform primarily focuses on journals in the Netherlands and Belgium.
