Access to OUP journals terminates June 1st

As of June 1st access to most current issues of journals of Oxford University Press (OUP) will end. The VSNU (the Association of Universities in the Netherlands) and OUP have been negotiating about a new license for 2017, including open access, but could not reach an agreement.

What is still accessible?

EUR/ISS researchers and students still have access to the back files of the journals under the license from 2005 until 2016. Furthermore, the University Library continues its subscriptions to a limited number of journals that were not part of the collective license. In the two documents below (attachments) you will find lists of journals to which the EUR still has access.
