Evalu­a­tion of the Swedish Spring­er Compact agre­e­ment: report 4

Springer contract was the first Swedish agreement signed with the intent to offset publishing costs with subscription costs. The agreement is a limited pilot and the Bibsam steering committee commissioned an evaluation of its effects.

Red background and an owl pointing to a bullet list. The headline is "Evalution of offset agreements" and the list says: publication output, economy, administration, reseracher awareness and attitudes, research administration, recommendations.

The agreement is coming to an end and the renegotiations between Bibsam and Springer Nature are in progress. Report 4 is a continuation of report 3 and includes updated recommendations for the ongoing renegotiations.
