OVERALL ASSESSMENT AND COMMENTS This agreement should have a significant impact on CRKN’s transition to open access. It was developed on the basis of cost neutrality and has limited exclusions.

The pricing model for this agreement has moved away from historic pricing and member fees are determined according to CRKN’s banding system, which supports sustainability and accessibility for this and future agreements.
