|OVERALL ASSESSMENT AND COMMENTS
|It currently appears to be affordable and sustainable, but there is a hope that the proportion of publishing fees will gradually increase in the next agreement period. Librarians need to further promote and advocate for the open-access publishing model to researchers. They should collaborate with publishers to jointly maintain and ensure the quality of papers is not compromised under the author-pay publishing model.
