Sponsoring and co-creation of open access books
TU Delft has been a supporter and funder of open access publications since 2004
In addition to the open access publishing of peer reviewed articles, TU Delft would like to emphasize that open access books and book chapters are also of great importance in the free dissemination of science. As a result TU Delft Library has a long tradition of sponsored books and book chapters that have been made accessible as open access versions.
In 2022, a new chapter has opened. From that year on, TU Delft OPEN Publishing has been working closely with several publishers to publish the books of authors affiliated with Delft in open access modus. This is done on the basis of mutual interests and based on affordable financial principles.
TU Delft has a partnership with the following publishers:
nai010 publishers specializes in developing, publishing and distributing books in the fields of architecture, urbanism, art and design. Resulting from the merger of NAi Publishers and 010 Publishers as of July 2012, nai010 publishers is the largest internationally orientated Dutch publisher in the fields of architecture, art, photography and design. nai010 and TU Delft OPEN Publishing are partners in creating open access publications.
