(January 2015, Oxford) The Austrian Science Fund (FWF), the Austrian Academic Consortium (Kooperation E-Medien Österreich, KEMÖ), and Taylor & Francis Group have today announced a two year pilot which will offset article publishing charges paid by the Austrian Science Fund against subscription costs for KEMÖ members.
This offset amount will be used by the Austrian Academic Consortium members to reduce the costs of their new or existing subscriptions. In so doing, the agreement allows Taylor & Francis Group to fully acknowledge the funding provided by FWF for researchers to publish on an open access basis in the hybrid journals that make up Taylor & Francis Group’s Open Select program.
The agreement with The Austrian Science Fund and the Austrian Academic Consortium follows Taylor & Francis Group’s recent announcement of an agreement with JISC Collections, which included a discount arrangement for articles published on an open access basis in Open Select journals, determined by institutional expenditure.
