Transformative 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?

|OVERALL ASSESSMENT AND COMMENTS
||We do think this is sustainable with regards to costs and operations. Our researchers are glad to have full read access to the Wiley journals… they are popular and well used here. We think it is an added bonus to have the opportunity for our researchers to have the option to publish OA in Wiley journals – feedback is overwhelmingly positive.|
