Dutch universities have vowed not to soften their groundbreaking demands for publishers to permit all papers published by their academics to be made open access for no extra charge. In January last year, Sander Dekker, the Dutch minister for education, culture and science, decreed that 60 percent of Dutch research articles must be open access by 2019 and 100 percent by 2024. Dutch university presidents responded by agreeing to make their renewal of subscription deals dependent on publishers taking steps to realize this goal.
