A consortium of publicly-funded Irish higher education institutions and Elsevier, a global leader in information analytics specialising in science and health, have agreed to the country's first open access program with a major scientific publisher towards the goal of full open access to Irish research publications.
The three-year agreement means Irish researchers from 19 institutions will have access to the entire Freedom Collection of 16 million publications from 2,500 journals published by Elsevier and its society partners on ScienceDirect, Elsevier's leading platform of peer-reviewed scholarly literature. The agreement also facilitates a transition to open access and enables Irish researchers to publish more than 70 percent of their research without having to pay an Article Publishing Charge (APC).
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.
