Euro open access extended

Publications based on scientific research funded by eleven European nations will be open access as of January 2020. The cOAlition S announced the new policy yesterday, which includes a common cap on OA publishing fees. The new open access coalition also rules-out hybrid OA (where subscription journals do not charge to read some content).

This is another blow to the for-profit publishers in their European markets. Universities in Germany and Sweden are no longer subscribing to Elsevier journals after price negotiations failed.
