Publishing a Book in Open Access

"If I publish my book in open access, it won’t sell", is a commonly heard complaint among authors. In reality, the contrary appears to be true. Many publishers have discovered that publishing in open access actually stimulates sales. People use the internet to discover books, not read them. If a book is available throughout the world, it can be seen by any potential reader, which makes them more willing to buy a copy. Visibility is essential.

Publishing Data using UvA/HvA figshare

Is the organisation funding or publishing your research asking you to share your data? Assuming the information is not under embargo, you can do this quite simply in UvA/HvA figshare. Your file will be assigned a Digital Object Identifier (DOI), a unique permanent link that you can add to articles or presentations.
