FINANCIAL SHIFT

Transfomative agreements vary by their transformative mechanisms, meaning the way in which financing is shifted from the supscription side to open access publishing. What are the characteristics of this agreement to this regard?

Subscriptions fully converted to oa publishing fees (access related costs 5% or less)
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 exeeding or not reaching the number of oa publishing entitlements?

Based on the modelling of current and projected publishing patterns, we believe the caps will cover all articles published by UK institutions. However, we will continue to monitor this closely on a month to month basis. If the total number of allotted articles is exhausted within the relevant period, institutions will either need to pay Springer additional APCs, or notify the publisher that they no longer wish to publish open access.
