|OVERALL ASSESSMENT AND COMMENTS
|We consider this a quite well transformative agreement and the cost is sustainable. Reading fee and publishing fee components must be clearly defined in future agreements.
In future, as OA publishing is becoming the norm, we hope to establish mechanisms that adjust payments based on publishing volume and support predictability for both publishers and institutions.
