@djoerd Wow, very cool! Do you know if there are other universities in the Netherlands planning something similar? Or is it then better to join efforts via the 'Universiteiten van Nederland' (VSNU)?

@Erik Good question: Not sure... There's an Amterdam University Press and a Leiden University Press, but they're only partly into open access (but also into digital rights management and/or article processing charges)

@djoerd Great, we need more things like that! Our university press has 50 open access books at https://lup.be/collections/ro_open-access-ebooks but the most alluring ones are... yeah well. Paid.
