Transformative agreements vary by their transformative mechanisms, meaning the way in which financing is shifted from the subscription side to open access publishing. What are the characteristics of this agreement to this regard?
|APC discount and APC “voucher” for institutions under the agreement|
How do entitlements for open access publishing correlate to the anticipated article output? Which mechanisms for risk sharing have been agreed in cases of exceeding or not reaching the number of OA publishing entitlements?
|There is no risk sharing agreed. We have just 12 OA vouchers for hybrids, however these vouchers are bound to package subscription (i.e. to particular institution). Some members (libraries) probably won’t be able to use the vouchers (no publishing). We have no load balancing (voucher reallocation) on consortial level, this should be improved in future or by agreement with publisher.|
