Dear Colleagues

Universities and libraries all over play a major role in exploring alternative approaches to journal subscriptions. See the following, and please share with people involved in budgets/funding/subscriptions:
Harvard Library Report report<https://osc.hul.harvard.edu/programs/journal-flipping/report-released/> on converting subscription journals to open access (also: https://dash.harvard.edu/bitstream/handle/1/27803834/DASH%20Version-Journal-flipping-final-Aug4-2016-print-2.pdf?sequence=3)
Agreement between universities in the Netherlands and Elsevier, Wiley e.g. https://www.elsevier.com/__data/assets/pdf_file/0004/155425/VSNU-NL_applicable-journals.pdf
Offsetting agreements e.g. between Max Planck and Springer: https://www.mpg.de/9709881/oa-max-planck-society-springer
Mellon Foundation Pay It Forward<http://icis.ucdavis.edu/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/UC-Pay-It-Forward-Final-Report.rev_.7.18.16.pdf> Model
Kind regards
