OA in Belgium: What are my rights? What are my obligations?

To better assist you in your Open Access deposit process, ULiège Library provides you with an informational leaflet "Open Access in Belgium. My rights. My obligations".

You can find the English version of this brochure as well as the content of this brochure and other information on our website.

You will find there the concrete implications for ULiège members of:

  • the Open Access decree of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation, which makes it compulsory to deposit in OA publications written within ULiège.
  • the modification of the legal provisions relating to copyright, which gives authors the right to disseminate their manuscript in OA for research financed by public funds (50% or more), regardless of the contract signed with the publisher.
