(2nd Jun 2022) Elsevier, a global leader in research publishing and information analytics, is establishing a pilot with Oable, the innovative open access (OA) workflow management solution developed by Knowledge Unlatched, to simplify the librarian approval workflow for open access publishing.
Oable supports libraries in managing their OA activities across publishers, including different types of commercial agreements and products. The new partnership will be piloted with select institutions with the aim of streamlining transactions and reducing the administrative burden on librarians and university officials. This means librarians for the institutions participating in the pilot will be able to manage their OA agreements and arrangements for all Elsevier journals through the Oable platform.
