New agreements for open access publishing
With the beginning of the year some new transformative agreements have become active. These agreements with renowned publishers aim at bringing about the change from subscription- to publication-based financing of scientific journals in a cost-neutral manner. In addition, this transformative process includes the consistent switch to open access as form of publication.
