Springer Nature and Max Planck Digital Library Sign Transformative OA Agreement

Porter Anderson reports the following for Publishing Perspectives:

What’s being called a landmark agreement between Springer Nature and the Max Planck Digital Library is being announced today (October 20) from Springer in London as creating ‘a route to open access’ for Nature research journals.

The agreement newly in place is intended to ‘deliver the first ever transformative agreement for Nature and Nature-branded journals.’ Based in Germany’s Projekt DEAL agreement concluded last January for Springer Nature journals, the commercial framework agreed with Max Planck will now be offered to German institutions, in time for a January 2021 start.

The transformative agreement, planned to run for four years, is meant to ‘enable authors affiliated with participating institutions to publish their research articles accepted for publication in Nature and Nature-branded research journals immediately open access at no cost to them. Participating institutions will also gain read access to the complete Nature portfolio, including Nature Review titles and all forthcoming Nature-branded journals.’

For more information, read the article.
