The Hungarian consortium EISZ will not renew the agreement with Taylor & Francis in 2020.
EISZ and Taylor & Francis have been collaborating fruitfully since 2018: the publisher and the Hungarian consortium had a read & publish agreement, including access to T&F journals, OA publishing grants, and archival rights for the consortium members.
However, the 2020 proposal did not include post termination access rights by default, but for additional fees. EISZ declared that withdrawing previously granted conditions is not acceptable for the Hungarian consortium, and requested for a revised proposal. The publisher’s new proposal was submitted in January 2020, and has not changed the conditions significantly.
After consultations with the consortium member institutions and the steering committee, EISZ decided not to accept the revised proposal for 2020.
