zbMATH Will Become Freely Available

zbMATH is transitioning into an OA platform beginning in 2021. FIZ Karlsruhe announced in a press release, “This service, which has been subject to a charge up to now, will thus be available free of charge to all interested persons worldwide. The change in the business model will make it possible to use most information and data of zbMATH freely for research purposes and for linking to other non-commercial services.” The reusability of zbMATH’s data and the ability to share it were “severely limited by the previous licensing model.”

When zbMATH goes OA, it will “enable the integration of other services, e.g., better search functions for full texts from free digital libraries such as arXiv and EuDML. A further dimension of new applications is offered by the linkage with mathematical research data, which so far have been largely isolated and poorly developed.”

The press release adds, “At present, the publishers of zbMATH—FIZ Karlsruhe, the European Mathematical Society (EMS) and Heidelberger Akademie der Wissenschaften—stipulate this model in a new publisher’s agreement. In addition, the contracts governing existing collaborations with publishing houses will be renewed and the terms of use and reviewer conditions will be adapted.”
