OVERALL ASSESSMENT AND COMMENTS Agreement based on current member subscriptions with a set number of APC vouchers included per year. APCs can only be used in titles to which the member subscribes. The number of vouchers may be insufficient to cover all article output. Although Emerald offered 100% open access, it would have been too expensive for most members.
