|OVERALL ASSESSMENT AND COMMENTS||At the moment, this TA is sustainable since there was a minor cost increase in comparison to our previous subscription-only agreement. We do see a small increase in publications at this publisher (however, still early to assess thoroughly), which may lead in cost increase in the agreement starting from 2025 (if we renew). It is however too early to confirm, since we yet have to calculate efficacy of the agreement.|
