COSTS

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
Comments on cost development Not easy to assess, there was an intermittent two-year period during which the larger old consortium (pre-2018) ceased to exist and institutions were using limited access at decreased payments (no state co-funding). The agreement almost failed to continue from 2020 onwards. The publisher has offered OA waivers to Charles Univ. as sort of pain relief.
FINANCIAL SHIFT

Transfomative 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 “voucher” for Charles University (under the agreement)
RISK SHARING

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 5 OA vouchers for hybrids, however these vouchers are bound to package subscription and to particular institution. The waiver choice is fully in Charles University hands.
