EMS Press, the publishing house of the European Mathematical Society, announced in June 2020 its Subscribe To Open (S2O) programme – initially for 10 journals. With S2O, libraries continue to subscribe to journals for 2021 (with the usual subscriber benefits, such as access to the archive). At the end of 2020, if a journal has achieved the target set by the Press then that journal becomes open access for 2021 – if not then it remains behind a paywall and only subscribers will have access.
The decision has been well received by the mathematics community and librarians who value sustainable Open Access publishing and enjoy close ties with the Press.
Now EMS Press is launching a new offer that allows libraries to reduce costs and at the same time to contribute to high-quality Open Access publishing. The offer is a 3-year subscription with the conditions: 3-year subscription with price freeze for individual journal titles; 3-year subscription with price freeze and a 5 percent discount for each year, for the journals package; and archive access included.
The offer is valid until November 30, 2020. The price freeze is based on the current price list, 2021.
