|OVERALL ASSESSMENT AND COMMENTS
|This is a capped agreement which means that some careful management of the article flow may be needed towards the end of the year. However the cost basis of the agreement, with a slight reduction in subscription fee forming the basis of the total fee, certainly accords with the aim of constraining costs.
