"Springer Nature Accelerates Its Transformative Journey with the Signing of Landmark Pure OA Deal"

Springer Nature has released "Springer Nature Accelerates Its Transformative Journey with the Signing of Landmark Pure OA Deal."

Here's an excerpt:

New agreements agreed this week with the Bibsam consortium in Sweden and Norway's Unit consortium take the number of Springer Nature’s read and publish deals to ten, putting the publisher firmly on the path to becoming a transformative publisher.

In a first for Springer Nature, Bibsam, representing the institutional libraries, and four of Sweden’s funding bodies (the Swedish Research Council, Formas, Forte and Vinnova) have agreed a deal which will see them share the costs of publishing in Springer Nature’s OA journals. . . .

Springer Nature has also agreed a transformative read and publish deal with Norway. This agreement, which will run from 2020 to 2022, will allow researchers in Norway to read articles in journals on SpringerLink and Norwegian authors to publish Open Access in over 2000 journals, making primary research with corresponding authors from Norway immediately and freely accessible from the point of publication, which Unit says will, "meet all our requirements for transition agreements, and will enable Norwegian researchers to read and publish in the majority of Springer journals".
