Publications

This webpage applies to researchers who received funding by FOM in a project or programme that has been approved/awarded before 1 January 2017.

Since 1 January 2017 approved/awarded projects in physics – including the NWO Physics Industrial Partnership Programmes (IPP) -  receive funding from the NWO Domain Science (ENW). For the right acknowledgements, please visit the NWO website.

As a workgroup leader BUW you do research with funding from FOM. On this page you will find instructions about the acknowledgements, providing input for the output overview and the policy line open access.

Acknowledgment and use of NWO logo

Acknowledgement: funding before 1 January 2017 
The information given below applies to researchers who receive funding from FOM, in a project or programme that was awarded before 1 January 2017.

If your FOM/NWO research leads to a publication (articles, reports, theses, conference contributions and the like), we kindly request you to include an acknowledgement in the publication(s) concerned using the Dutch or English formulation given below: 
Dit werk maakt deel uit van het onderzoekprogramma van de Stichting voor Fundamenteel Onderzoek der Materie (FOM), die deel uitmaakt van de Nederlandse Organisatie voor Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek (NWO). 
This work is part of the research programme of the Foundation for Fundamental Research on Matter (FOM), which is part of the Dutch Research Council (NWO)

The NWO logo see NWO website (in Dutch) should be placed with your acknowledgement.

In the case of a FOM Industrial Partnership Programme: 
* Dit werk maakt deel uit van een Industrial Partnership Programme van de Stichting voor Fundamenteel Onderzoek der Materie (FOM), die deel uitmaakt van de Nederlandse Organisatie voor Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek (NWO). 
* This work is part of an Industrial Partnership Programme of the Foundation for Fundamental Research on Matter (FOM), which is part of the Dutch Research Council (NWO).

The NWO logo see NWO website (in Dutch) should be placed with your acknowledgement.

Acknowledgement: funding since 1 January 2017 
Since 1 January 2017, physics projects awarded funding – including the NWO Physics Industrial Partnership Programmes (IPP) – receive funding from the NWO Domain Science. For the correct form of acknowledgement we refer you to the NWO website.

Research news 
If you have interesting research news, such as upcoming publications, events or prizes or if you have had contact with the media about your research, then we kindly request you to contact the Communication Department of NWO Domain Science (section Physics) Margit de Kok

Providing input for the output overview

Each year, NWO-I requests you to provide an overview of all publications, theses, invited lectures, conference contributions, patents and professional publications produced by your group. This is the output overview. It only concerns work that is funded by FOM. For example, it concerns projects in the context of the NWO Physics Vrije programma's, NWO Physics Industrial Partnership Programmes or the NWO Physics Projectruimte. NWO-I will incorporate the output review in the progress report of the programme concerned.

You will receive guidelines for submitting the output at the end of the report year. The progress reports of the NWO Physics Vrije Programma’s are also available online on the right-hand side of the page and contain detailed information about the programme concerned.

Policy line open access publications

NWO subscribes to the importance of making the publications that emerge from researched (co-)funded by NWO (aneviously FOM) freely accessible. NWO therefore encourages open access publication. With efect from 1 December 2015, NWO changed its granting conditions in this area. This change also applied to FOM and therefore also now to NWO-I, the Institutes Organisation of NWO.

Current policy line (per 1 December 2015)

  1. Publications emerging from research awarded funding within calls for proposal since 1 December 2015 should be freely accessible immediately after publications.
  2. For projects and calls that were started/awarded funding before 1 January 2015 the policy is that publications must be made freely accessible as soon as possible after publication.

Publications can be made freely accessible in one of the following ways:

  1. “Golden road”: Publications in scientific open access journals or books with a safeguarding of the scientific quality by means of peer review.
  2. “Green road”: Publications in standard journals that are made freely accessible by also placing them in a public database, for example a repository (see below for more details). 
  3. Hybrid journals: publications in a standard journal where the rights to the individual publication are purchased and therefore the publication is made freely accessible. For articles to which the rights have not been purchased, the journal still applies subscription costs. This form is not preferred and is also not eligible for a remuneration of the costs from the NWO Incentive Fund Open Access.

With respect to open access publications via the “green road” the following is noted:

  • Nearly all journals (including high-impact journals like Science and the journals in the Physical Review series) permit the author to archive an own version of the publication online, in other words, make that available on the author's own website or the website of university or institute or on an online repository or e-print server. This concerns the final author's version of the manuscript (post-refereeing) and not the PDF of the version that is published by the journal. All repositories stated in the directory of open access repositories have been approved for this.
  • Some journals apply an embargo period before an open access version may be made available. Nature and other journals from the Nature Publishing Group are an example of this: here an author may archive the final (post-refereeing) version of his or her manuscript six months after publication in the journal. Such an embargo must, of course, be complied with, as the aim of the NWO policy is to ensure that the publication is made freely available as soon as possible. A pre-refereeing author’s version may often be made freely available without delay. 
  • For journals that do not standardly give the author the right to archive an own version in an open access manner, this right should be arranged by means of an addendum to the publication agreement. It is the researcher's responsibility to determine whether this right exists and otherwise to make additional arrangements for this prior to the publication. An overview of the open access policy per journal is maintained on the Romeo/Sherpa website.
  • With a view to the findability of publications, use should be made of international e-print servers already established in the discipline such as arXiv.org instead of the personal website of the researcher or the website of the university or institute. A link to this repository can, of course, be placed on the personal website and preferably a central webpage of the institute too.

Remuneration of costs for open access publishing (ended with effect from 1 January 2018)*
NWO has a remuneration scheme for the costs of open access publications. This Incentive Fund Open Access can only be used for publishing in open access journals and no longer for purchasing the rights to articles from subscription journals (i.e. not for publications in hybrid journals). With effect from 1 January 2018, NWO has ended its Incentive Fund Open Access. NWO will fulfil all previously made financial commitments from the fund. Further information about the ending of the Incentive Fund Open Access can be found here
