|OVERALL ASSESSMENT AND COMMENTS||The agreement has received the consensus of the CNR scientific community that appreciated the transformation of the contract. However, some gaps in the communication process of the initiative have penalized some CNR authors. The costs and the procedures are sustainable. However, in future agreements the overall OA transformation of all articles published by CNR authors must be agreed.|
