Open-access transformation contracts. DFG funds license contract with Cambridge University Press with EUR 1.6 million

The Joint Committee of the German Research Foundation (DFG) has decided on the funding of a national consortium with Cambridge University Press on 29 March 2019. This means that all German scholars affiliated with an institution that adopts the license can publish materials in the open access format in journals of the publishing house. The contract was negotiated by the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, which will also organise the implementation of the contract.
