How do the costs of the agreement relate to previous subscription-only agreements with the publisher?
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?
|The model is based on a certain number of articles (for Hybrid and Fully OA, respectively) multiplied with a “Hybrid PAR fee” and a “Fully OA PAR fee”. Then a buffer zone for Hybrid (+/- 15% over base article number) and a buffer zone for Fully OA (+/- 20% over base article number).|
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?||Yes|

|PERPETUAL ACCESS RIGHTS||Yes|
|Comments on workflows||There will be a new workflow/dashboard later this year (2022)|
|OVERALL ASSESSMENT AND COMMENTS||The price model has been adjusted to make publishing affect the individual prices more than the read fee. This agreement now includes all the Fully OA titles which we see as an important step in the transition. A problem is the slow pace in which Hybrid titles are flipped into Fully OA titles.|
