"Max Planck Society Discontinues Agreement with Elsevier; Stands Firm with Projekt DEAL Negotiations"

The Max Planck Digital Library has released Max Planck Society Discontinues Agreement with Elsevier; Stands Firm with Projekt DEAL Negotiations.

Here's an excerpt:

The President and scientific council members of the Max Planck Society (MPS), one of the world's largest research performing organizations, counting 14,000 scientists who publish 12K new research articles a year—around 1500 of which in Elsevier journals, have mandated the Max Planck Digital Library to discontinue their Elsevier subscription when the current agreement expires on December 31, 2018. With this move the Society joins nearly 200 universities and research institutions in Germany who have already cancelled their individual agreements with Elsevier in the course of 2016 and 2017 and affirmed their support of the national licensing framework Projekt DEAL, led by the German Rector’s Conference.
