University West has a new read and publish agreement with the scientific publisher Elsevier. The agreement has been signed by the Swedish Bibsam Consortium. As from the 1st of January 2020 it will be possible to publish open access, but already now you can find articles in the database Science Direct. The earlier agreement was cancelled in 2018 as Elsevier could not meet the requirements of the Bibsam Consortium regarding open access.
The new agreement is valid from the 1st of January 2020 and includes
- the possibility to read about 2000 Elsevier journals
- all articles written by authors from Swedish universities will be published open access
- to publish with CC-BY licens
