Transformative deals substantially aid the transition to OA. Let’s give them the time they need to do so.

Last month, Springer Nature agreed a new transformative ‘read and publish’ deal with the Norwegian library consortium, Unit.  This, coupled with renewals of existing deals in the UK (Jisc), Sweden (Bibsam) and Qatar, takes the number of such deals we have into double figures, the most of any publisher.  These deals enable researchers in these ten countries to publish open access in over 1900 Springer journals as well as read the research of others across this portfolio.

The future of open access books

Open access book publishing has been growing in recent years. The Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB) lists 2,099 open access books published in 2018, an increase of 38% from 2017. Funders are also starting to engage with open access for books: a small number of European funders now mandate open access for books and provide financial support for open access book publication. COAlition S has also indicated that they support transitioning monographs to open access, and will provide guidance by the end of 2021.

What our customers say

…my interactions with the editors and staff were really key. I want to emphasize that the handling editor played no small part in making this paper what it is now. He really went out of his way to provide feedback on framing and experiments to do in order to test certain hypotheses…the editor was key in making the story what it is. He is definitely part of this discovery.
