Springer Nature Signs Its First OA Agreements in Canada and Colombia

Springer Nature is signing two transformative agreements that will increase open research in the Americas: with the Federal Science Libraries Network (FSLN) in Canada and with Consorcio Colombia in Colombia. The FSLN agreement started in January 2022, and the Consorcio Colombia agreement starts in July 2022.

“Both agreements provide the ability to publish OA in over 2,000 of Springer Nature’s hybrid journals, including Springer, Palgrave and Adis portfolios,” the press release notes. “Transformative Agreements are just one way in which Springer Nature is opening up research. In December 2021, Springer Nature became the first publisher to immediately publish one million gold OA primary research and review articles. Nearly 2.5 million authors across all academic disciplines and from around the globe have therefore been supported in making their research OA, benefiting from the increased impact, usage and reach publishing OA provides.”

For more information, read the press release.
