John Wiley & Sons, Inc. (NYSE: JWA and JWB), a global leader in research and education, announced today an open access and subscription agreement with the Hungarian Electronic Information Service National Programme (EISZ). This three-year transformative agreement provides researchers in 13 EISZ-affiliated institutions with access to read journals published by Wiley, and the ability to publish open access with Wiley.
Springer Nature and the Hungarian Academic Consortium (EISZ) announced today an agreement that combines reading access and open access (OA) publishing in one single framework. Effective from January 2019, researchers from the participating consortium institutions will gain access to over 2,000 Springer journals and will have the right to publish their research via the OA model in more than 1,850 Springer hybrid journals without any direct costs, allowing wider reach of current findings and a greater benefit for both science and society.
On the 14th and 15th of June, EISZ organised a workshop about the transitional agreements with publishers, and the impact of these agreements in library workflows. The workshop was the third in line, following the re-wording of our model license and the questions around eBook acquisitions.
