12 May: Publication costs for Open Access: funding opportunities at the FU

19 May: Elsevier journals: can the FU do without them?
The FU, like many other universities and research institutions in Germany, terminated its contract with Elsevier in summer 2017. This was to increase the pressure on the publisher to achieve fair prices and, at the same time, worldwide free access (open access). To date, this has not been implemented. We report on the current state of negotiations with Elsevier and talk about experiences with 5 years without an Elsevier contract. (Presentation slides)
