Share agreement facts
The open access transformation comes with a cultural change regarding the way how consortia and negotiators exchange information and share their lessons learned. This portal offers an opportunity to share facts and assessments of the transformative open access agreements globally in place (“offsetting”, “read and publish”). Our aim is to create transparency with respect to availability, mechanisms, and key parameters of transformative agreements. By this we will set the necessary basis for our collaborative work on their advancement towards an efficient and sustainable APC market.
You are kindly invited to share key parameters and personal assessments with the community through the following form. Every submission will be carefully reviewed in advance of its final release. You will help us to soon come up with a current agreement overview that will enable libraries and consortia around the world to engage with others in order to align strategies and make informed decisions in the negotiations.
