Open Access transformation project (Hormone and Metabolic Research)



Open Access transformation project: Library consortium and Thieme embark on collaboration

The Thieme Group has signed a transformation agreement with ZB MED – Information Centre for Life Sciences, the Forschungszentrum Jülich, and 14 additional specialist libraries. In doing so, the project partners have demonstrated that it is possible to conclude forward-looking agreements that benefit all parties involved, even beyond major projects such as DEAL. As part of an initial pilot project, authors at participating institutions will first be given the opportunity to publish original papers in Hormone and Metabolic Research, an international journal published by Thieme, on an open access basis at no extra cost. The license fee paid by libraries to the publisher for access to the journal is increasingly being converted into a publication fee on the basis of the five-year contract. The German Research Foundation (DFG) is funding the project as part of the Licences for Digital Content programme, which will potentially also include other titles.
