About Groningen University Press (UGP)

Profile

Groningen University Press (UGP) offers a publishing platform for books and series by faculty and researchers working at or with the University of Groningen. The preferred publishing model is open access, enabling any researcher or interested reader around the world to find and access the information without barriers. Groningen University Press was founded in 2017 at the Library of the University of Groningen as a publishing platform for scientific journals. In April 2019 we introduced books and series currently hosting 19 journals, 2 books and 1 series.

All of our publications are available free of charge to anyone, and accesible across the globe. We aim to provide authors the widest possible dissemination so that researchers around the world can find and access the information they need without barriers.

We follow guidelines from the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) to ensure ethical editing and publishing. We believe that the control of publishing should be maintained by researchers themselves.

Rights and Licenses

Groningen University Press maintains an author-friendly rights policy which includes granting authors exclusive, unrestricted rights to the online publication. Authors retain copyright of the work and simply grant UGP the right to the initial publication. Works are placed under a Creative Commons license, which allows for future redistribution of the work, provided that the author is named and UGP is given due credit as the first place of publication. Our recommended license is CC-BY as this is the best aligned to the principles of open access as defined by the Budapest Open Access Initiative, and recommended by the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA).

The CC-BY license allows readers to copy, redistribute, remix and build upon the publications, as long as clear attribution to the original source and author(s) are given. If UGP issues an online publication of a book or series that is published in a printed version through another press, we request permission of the original publisher and authors and will acknowledge the original publisher. Authors can also enter into separate contracts for the distribution of later editions of the work. For example, books may be placed in an institutional repository, or published in print form through another press, provided the author acknowledges the original publisher.

Indexing & DOI

Published content at UGP is indexed with CrossRef and assigned a Digital Object Identifier (DOI). This means that each reference is available so that the publishingcommunity can track citations.
