The FinELib consortium that centrally acquires electronic materials for Finnish universities, universities of applied sciences, research institutes and public libraries, and the international science publisher Elsevier continue the negotiations started in 2016.Currently the agreement makes it possible for researchers to continue using Elsevier’s journals until end of 2017.
The ongoing negotiations try to speed up the transition to open access by getting Finnish researchers the right to publish open access in as many high quality scholarly journals as possible without extra charge (Article Processing Charges). Unfortunately the first meeting showed that Elsevier is not willing to develop open access business models. Elsevier insists on keeping up the traditional subscription model and the price increases linked to it.
FinELib and Elsevier will continue the negotiations in June.
