Study on Read & Publish Agreements

EUA and a coalition of 24 organisations representing national rectors' conferences, national negotiating consortia and libraries are funding a study investigating the implications of so-called Read & Publish agreements.

Several European countries have recently been concluded such deals, which combine reading access to publishers' collections with provisions for publishing research outputs in open access.

The study intends to support national negotiating consortia in developing better value for such agreements with publishers. The study also seeks to inform the dialogue between universities, research organisations, publishers and stakeholders within the EU as well as worldwide.

Technopolis is carrying out the work for EUA between May and December 2019. Technopolis is a consultancy specialized in science and technology policy.
