Re: University of Toronto Renews Elsevier Contract
The University of Toronto (U of T) has renewed their contract with Elsevier for 2021-2023 through the Canadian Research Knowledge Network (CRKN). Driven by a bold negotiation strategy, this deal significantly reduces costs for U of T and participating institutions across Canada, supports U of T authors publishing their research open access, and ensures transparency of the agreement.
Through this agreement, U of T researchers are now eligible for a 20% off discount on Article Processing Charges (APCs) for both hybrid and gold open access journals. Cell Press, Lancet, and some other society-owned journals are excluded from this deal.
