Springer Nature and the Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL) have agreed an approach that will deliver the first ever transformative agreement (TA) for Nature and the Nature research journals. Building on the nationwide Projekt DEAL agreement concluded last January for Springer Nature journals, the commercial framework agreed with MPDL will now be offered to German institutions, in time for a January 2021 start. The Nature Portfolio comprises best-in-kind publications, products and services that extend to meet the broad needs of the researcher and help them to fulfil their personal aspirations and those of the scientific community.
With this transformative agreement German authors will be able to make their very best and most significant research immediately and openly accessible to all with fees covered. Find out more about the Nature journals portfolio and our in-house editorial teams here.
