If you are a corresponding author affiliated with a participating Federal Science Libraries Network (FSLN) institution, the FSLN Transformative Agreement means you can make your publications immediately open in subscription journals with fees covered by your institution.
Canada’s FSLN and Springer Nature has entered into a Transformative Agreement, meaning that corresponding authors* affiliated with participating institutions are eligible to make their publications immediately open with fees covered by their institution. The agreement includes more than 2,000 hybrid journals across the Springer Nature portfolio (Springer, Adis, Palgrave and Academic Journals). In addition, you can enjoy full access to all Springer subscription journal content. Established by FSLN, this agreement will run through 31 December 2025.
