Delft University of Technology has become the latest institution to join our open access membership programme. The programme offers institutions a flexible way to support researchers to publish using the open access model, allowing them to meet funder requirements for the dissemination of research.


TU Delft teaches over 40 technological and scientific disciplines from eight faculties. One of the Times Higher Education’s top 100 universities, it has a particular focus on interdisciplinary work and co-operation. It has a recognised commitment to Open Access publishing; in 2017 over 50% of articles from TU Delft were published open access.

‘Open access publishing on fair conditions is part of TU Delft’s ambition as part of our Open Science program. Publishing partners such as the Royal Society will help us to achieve this ambition.’
Just de Leeuwe, Publishing Advisor at the Delft University of Technology


The agreement will allow researchers at TU Delft to publish in our open access journals Royal Society Open Science and Open Biology with costs covered by the institution at a substantial discount.

Royal Society Open Science publishes papers across all of science, including negative findings. Fast decision times, open peer review and flexibility over length and scope offer authors a home for high quality work in many disciplines. The journal covers life sciences, physical sciences, mathematics, engineering and computer science, articles in chemistry are peer reviewed by specialists under a unique partnership agreement with the Royal Society of Chemistry. Royal Society Open Science leads the way in open science practices, offering registered reports and replication studies. The Editor-in-Chief leads the work of 14 Subject Editors and a growing number of Associate Editors.

Open Biology was created in response to requests from scientists for a specialist open access journal publishing leading research in cell and developmental biology, molecular and structural biology, biochemistry, neuroscience, immunology, microbiology and genetics. The journal operates open peer review and advocates high standards in protocols and statistical analysis. The editorial board includes world-renowned practising scientists who aim to provide a journal that serves their respective communities. It publishes research articles, reviews, invited perspectives, invited commentaries and comments.
