The George A. Smathers Libraries at the University of Florida (UF) and Elsevier, a global leader in research publishing and information analytics, have agreed to a new pilot program to support open access (OA) publishing at UF.
The agreement will support UF’s open access goals by providing the university’s researchers with incentives to publish OA articles. It also presents the opportunity to better understand researcher behaviour and to learn from the resulting data—helping progress OA at UF and beyond. The pilot agreement is an amendment to the existing licensing agreement UF currently has with Elsevier. The new pilot agreement will take effect from July 1, 2020.
The University of Florida (UF) is a major, comprehensive, land-grant, sea-grant, research university, ranked #7 among public universities by US News and World Report in 2020.
Elsevier is one of the world’s leading subscription and open access publishers, enabling researchers to stay up to date with the latest findings in science, technology and health from around the world.
