Springer Nature agrees to a new agreement fulfilling requirements for open publishing
After a long negotiating process, Unit has, on behalf of UiO and other research institutions, signed a letter of intent for an agreement with the academic publisher Springer Nature. The Springer-Compact agreement is valid for 3 years from 2020.
The agreement means that researchers from the participating institutions will be able to publish their research articles openly in the publishers’ wide range of journals. The publishing costs will be covered by UiO through this agreement and provides a simplified process for publishing and financing open access articles. In addition, students, researchers and other staff have access to read research articles published by Springer Nature.
This is the third large agreement made by UiO to promote open publishing to comply with the National goals and guidelines for open access to research articles.
The current subscription agreement continues until the end of 2019.
