Abstract

Libraries across the globe have been pursuing open access for decades, but until recently, progress has continued to be painfully slow. Transformative open access agreements with publishers have begun to change this, as institutions in Europe and increasingly in the US as well are now negotiating open access agreements with major publishers. By transitioning major journal license expenditures from ‘read access’ to support open access publishing, we can begin to achieve open access at scale, supporting our authors in all of the journals in which they choose to publish. This talk will discuss UC’s experience in negotiating transformative open access agreements with existing publishers, including how native OA publishers can be integrated into this model to create a truly level playing field across all publishers.
