CRKN announces updated Licensing Principles -

CRKN has unveiled its updated Licensing Principles, a two-part document that includes Licensing Program Principles and Principles for Negotiations. The Licensing Principles build upon CRKN’s First Principles, which were developed in 2009 to prioritise collaboration, transparency, and consensus-building among CRKN members.

The updated Principles were developed by members of CRKN’s Content Strategy Committee in a year of significant negotiations with a clear mandate to reduce Big Deal costs, increase open access options, and remove non-disclosure clauses.

The updated Licensing Principles were drafted by first undertaking a scan of updated principle documents for negotiations and licensing. In particular, the Content Strategy Committee included inspiration from Couperin, JISC, the University of California, MIT Libraries, the Greater Western Library Alliance, and OA2020.
