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?
|Subscriptions partly converted to OA publishing fees|
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?
|OUP will guarantee the open access publication of all original research and review articles for 2021 even if the allowance of articles is reached. 2021 will be considered a data gathering year when output can be assessed and institutions can make informed decisions about how to proceed for 2022 and 2023. Through a consultation process in 2021, members can either revert to the pre-agreed allowances for 2022 or pay a top-up fee to continue to receive guaranteed publication of all original research and review articles open access. This process will be repeated in 2022 for the 2023 allowance.|
