Springer Agreement

Springer Compact: Open Access Agreement for Austrian Authors

Members of the Austrian Academic Library Consortium (including IHS) and the Austrian Science Fund established an agreement with Springer which includes access to more than 2,000 of Springer’s subscription journals as well as allowing authors to publish open access in subscription journals.

The Open Access agreement covers the open access charge for affiliated corresponding authors in those subscription-based journals that are offering the hybrid open access option Open Choice.

The agreement will kick-off on January 1, 2016.
