Elsevier subscription negotiations

(18 June 2021)

Negotiations for a new agreement between UK Universities and the publisher Elsevier commenced in March 2021, led by the sector and facilitated by Jisc 

In these negotiations, universities on behalf of their researchers and students have two main objectives:  

  • to reduce costs to sustainable levels 
  • to provide full and immediate open access to UK research. 

The Elsevier contract is due for renewal in December 2021. Visit our dedicated guide for more information.
