Libraries and national consortia globally are increasingly adopting publisher open access negotiations as a key component in their broader open access strategies. The ESAC Transformative Agreement Registry lists more than 200 agreements currently in place between 45 publishers, large and small, and libraries and national-level library consortia in 30 countries. While the ESAC Market Watch highlights the impact these agreements are having in enabling authors to retain copyright and publish their new research articles immediately open access, the agreements have ramifications that touch all stakeholders in scholarly communication: researchers, publishers, librarians, higher education and research administration, research funders and more.

Featuring the insights of a range of stakeholders, this course will give participants the opportunity to explore the impacts of transformative open access agreements from a variety of different perspectives.
  • What are the principles and strategic considerations that motivate stakeholders to engage in this pathway? 
  • What are the practical and operational implications for each of the stakeholders and how are they addressed?
  • As stakeholders inch forward on the path of transformative open access agreements, what new challenges do they see on the horizon and how do they propose to address them? 

Through live and recorded presentations, facilitated small-group discussions and other activities, participants will gain a better understanding of the open access scholarly publishing landscape and will come away with their own actionable roadmap for publisher negotiations aimed at driving an open, diverse and equitable scholarly communication system.
