Rector: articles must be added to TU/e database

From April 1, TU/e researchers are required to submit the final author’s version of their publications to the Information Expertise Center (IEC). The IEC will upload them to the TU/e Repository as soon as any embargo of the respective journal has been lifted. Rector Hans van Duijn announced the news during the open access symposium held in the Auditorium on Tuesday.

The symposium included lectures and discussions featuring NWO chairman Jos Engelen, former VSNU chairman Sijbolt Noorda, TU/e delegates Daniël Lakens and Anthonie Meijers, and Springer and PLOS representatives who talked about open-access publishing. Volkskrant journalist Martijn van Calmthout led discussions concerning related matters such as how to manage research data – open to fellow researchers or not – responsibly, and the ever-increasing pressure for scientists to review articles.
