OVERALL ASSESSMENT AND COMMENTS Since we have a very clear agreement on costs and no cap on number of articles that can be published, we see very little risk in this agreement. The only downside so far is that we didn’t manage to get all the journals subscribed to as part of the publish agreement. So Cell Press titles, Lancet titles and some Society owned titles are not included.
