The European Law Blog has secured funding from the UvA Diamond Open Access Fund. Written by academics, the Blog provides commentary on current developments in EU law and receives up to 30,000 views per month from readers across the globe. The funding will allow the blog to improve the functionality of its website and to issue DOI numbers for articles published on the blog. As well as a better peer-review system and improved integration in international university library search systems.
Publicly funded research should be easily accessible to everyone. We are grateful to the University Library for these funds that serve this mission. It will allow us to give our contributors more recognition for their open access work. The blog’s editorial team will work on the new site in the coming months and we expect to launch in early 2024. Laurens Ankersmit, founder of the blog & Assistant Professor European Law, ACELG
