Welcome to a meeting where the University Library will give information about the background for the decision to cancel the contract with the academic publisher Elsevier.
The Swedish research libraries, including Uppsala University Library, are cancelling their journal contract through Bibsam Consortium with the academic publisher Elsevier. The contract terminated 30 June 2018. Read more at the University Library website and at the Vice-Chancellor´s Blog.
At this meeting, you will be able to ask questions about other ways to get access to articles published after 30 June at Elsevier. It will be an opportunity discuss how the termination of the contract might affect researchers at Uppsala University and also how this decision might affect Elsevier’s future policies.
