Netherland Dutch universities and Elsevier extend current license agreement by six months - 14 Dec 2018

Agreements about subscription fees for academic journals are made with academic publishers on behalf of all Dutch universities. The Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU) is currently negotiating with these publishers on the universities' behalf. The universities are only willing to renew the subscription agreements on the provision that publishers accept 100% open access. During the next six months the VSNU and Elsevier will continue their negotiations in the joint hope that a future-proof contract will be concluded. The VSNU will report any new developments as soon as they arise.

The VSNU and information analytics business Elsevier are to extend their current agreement by six months. These six months will be used to continue discussions. The VSNU continues to strive to secure commitment to 100% open access by 2020, as set out in the National Open Science Plan.

During the meetings which took place over the past months between VSNU and Elsevier, topics discussed have included open science, how a new licensing agreement contributes to an aspired future open science infrastructure for the Netherlands, and the implications of Plan S. Extending the current agreement by six months will enable the continuation of these discussions.

The current agreement with Elsevier is set to expire on December 31, 2018. During the six-month extension, access will continue under existing terms. Elsevier and VSNU will also continue their gold OA pilot, broadening this to include additional open access journals.

US Wolters Kluwer, Health and ACHNE partner to advance community and public health research by nurse educators - 14 Dec 2018

Wolters Kluwer, Health will be awarding a grant together with the Association of Community Health Nursing Educators (ACHNE) to support community and public health educational research. The grant, to be awarded to a nurse educator, comes at a time when healthcare is increasingly taking place outside the acute care setting, requiring educators to strengthen their instruction in population-level healthcare and develop their nursing students' ability to manage complex chronic conditions.

The call for grant proposals opened December 12 and will officially be awarded in June 2019 at ACHNE's 41st Annual Institute. The $3,000 grant will be facilitated by ACHNE’s Research Committee Chair, Dr. Ann Stalter, through the organisation's annual Small Grant Award process.

As nurses take on more roles in response to today's increasing complex healthcare environment, it is expected that this grant will support a more concerted effort in public health education.
