EISZ initiated negotiation process with Elsevier in March 2018 regarding the subscription to ScienceDirect, Scopus, and SciVal for 2019. The goal of the negotiation was to reach a read & publish agreement which would facilitate a swift and full transition to Open Access.
Unfortunately, the proposals of Elsevier did not address the requirements of the Hungarian Negotiation Committee, therefore, EISZ Consortium will not renew the subscription to ScienceDirect, Scopus, and SciVal in 2019.
We will soon publish an English language Questions and Answers article on our website, informing the international community about the nature of the negotiations.
EISZ Department is at full disposal in case of any questions.
