|Consortia / Institution
Approximate range of annual corresponding author publications
|Comments on size/article output
|From our bibliometric analysis we anticipate cca. up to 10 articles per year to be covered (max.) It is relatively small consortium.
How do the costs of the agreement relate to previous subscription-only agreements with the publisher?
|Agreement costs within the range of the previous spending level
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?
|OA publishing has been achieved as an extra service by and amendment to existing multi-year agreement. Financial shift has not been defined.
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 limit for no. of articles covered (unlimited). However, hybrid articles are eligible only if in subscribed collection(s) for given institution. Due to higher number of smaller partial Emerald collections (which are subscribed by the members) we expect that for some institutions some hybrid journals will be unreachable for OA publishing (because they are not subscribed by the given institution).
Are all journals relevant to your affiliated authors (in which you expect them to publish) eligible for OA publishing under the agreement?
|Are fully open access journals covered by the agreement?
|CC-BY preference, exceptions allowed
|Explicit listing of article types not set in the amendment
What is the approximate share of access related costs of the overall agreement?
|More than 50%
Are all read relevant journals covered by the agreement?
|PERPETUAL ACCESS RIGHTS
|Too early to assess
|OVERALL ASSESSMENT AND COMMENTS
|Eligible articles (hybrid ones) are only for subscribed collections. Due to higher number of fragmented Emerald collections (each institution can subscribe another set of collections) it is not straightforward to say if an article in particular journal could be covered or not for the given institution (required checking against title list for the particular collection or collections). This must be painful for the publisher too.
