The national quota for open access publishing at no extra cost for 2022 is likely to be reached in early November. This quota has been agreed by the consortium of Universities of the Netherlands (UVN) and publisher Springer Nature. From then on, until the end of 2022 corresponding authors from Radboud University and Radboudumc will receive an invoice for open access publishing in the journals of this publisher.
The University Library has renewed its interactive plagiarism module. By means of questions and short texts, students learn how to prevent plagiarism. The module is accessible to everyone and can be found on the e-learning page of the University Library.
In the new academic year, the Library of Science will be offering all kinds of workshops and (short) presentations again, on various topics such as open access, searching in subject-specific databases and copyright in education. All presentations can also be followed online. You can sign up via our calender.
Below you can see an overview of a few new publications we have added to our collection. Some of these items were requested by scientists or students of the Faculty of Science. Everyone can submit acquisition recommendations at the Library of Science.
Team Library of Science gives the new science students a warm welcome! We have ten important tips to make a great start. Teachers can offer these tips in their education matererial. We have a Dutch version and an English version.
If possible, the Library of Science also purchases an e-book copy of mandatory or recommended literature. These e-books are arranged by study in a guide. Teachers can link to the books in their study materials by means of the URL provided so that students can also view or download them at home.
The Library Guide Science is a good starting point to search for scientific literature: you will find links to general and subject-specific databases for FNWI. It also contains a link to e-learning for this faculty. This allows you to learn how to search efficiently and thoroughly in the databases for your study, in your own time and at your own pace. You can also find practical information here.
