Swiss Agreement Elsevier

Elsevier thus joins the publishers with whom the UNIGE library had already concluded agreements for the development of Open Science. Thus, all member institutions of swissuniversities and other member institutions of the CSAL consortium, as well as their affiliated researchers throughout Switzerland, retain access to the Freedom Collection and ScienceDirect, Elsevier`s leading platform for scientific literature. Researchers who are members of the CSAL consortium can access, through ScienceDirect, 16 million publications from more than 2,500 journals published by Elsevier and its social partners. In addition, researchers will be able to publish open access in most of Elsevier`s gold and hybrid journals and scale them to 100% by 2023. The agreement has been published and is on the homepage of the Consortium of Swiss Scientific Libraries. Traditional licensing models for access to scientific publications are based on different price models, often based on the size of the subscribing institution (RTD) and the historical cost of printed subscriptions. You do not take into account the expenses of publishing gold open access (Article Publishing Charges, APC). Annual rate increases for these contracts vary on average between 3% and 6%, but could be much more. Andrew DavisElsevier Communications, Europe+44 7393 242 466andrew.davis@elsevier.com This is an important step in the swissuniversities` national open access strategy, which aims to achieve 100% open access by 2024. The four-year agreement is the first time that CSAL has signed a national contract with a major publishing house and will help all academic and research institutions throughout Switzerland to move to open access.

Negotiations by Swissuniversities for a national “Read and Publish” license are ongoing.
