Dear all!

As you all know by now, Sweden's research libraries have, through the national consortium Bibsam, cancelled the agreement with Elsevier as of 1st of July. At Stockholm University we have decided to use the money saved from the cancellation to publish research in full Open Access journals, as this help to urge the development towards a sustainable transition to open science, as we see it.
