COSTS

How do the costs of the agreement relate to previous subscription-only agreements with the publisher?

Cost increase
Comments on cost development  When we moved to this new model, several other changes were made that all led to increased costs.
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?

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 exceeding or not reaching the number of oa publishing entitlements?

It has always been clear that we will exceed the number of articles paid via the agreement. As stipulated by the agreement, we will be obliged to pay for the OA publication of at least part of the articles that exceed the number of “allocated articles”.

ACCESS COVERAGE

Are all read relevant journals covered by the agreement?

PERPETUAL ACCESS RIGHTS No
WORKFLOW ASSESSMENT Ok
Comments on workflows
This would seem to be one of the better implementations that exist for the time being. Some aspects may be seen as “deficient” and there are issues with the T&F dashboard, etc. Clearly this is a work in progress, but we have to work with the publisher to improve the process.
OVERALL ASSESSMENT AND COMMENTS

 

It is a sustainable model and leads to a substantial increase in the number of articles that become available via Open Access. A cause for concern is the lack of PTA, and it is clear that the publisher sees this as an additional (major) source of future income.
