100 % open access in renewed contracts Springer Nature and Taylor & Francis
Earlier this year the Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU) reached an agreement with Springer Nature and Taylor & Francis for the coming three years. The agreements about subscription fees and Open Access with these academic publishers are made on behalf of all of the Dutch universities.
Unique to the negotiations is that, for the first time, the contracts are available for the public to see how funds are being spend. Read the VSNU news item and view the contracts.
