"Academics working in Dutch universities have been left without access to journals published by Oxford University Press after 18 months of subscription talks broke down.
Jaap Winter, the chief negotiator for the Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU), said that OUP’s offer would have involved 'a steep increase' in price and that the world is moving towards open access 'with or without' them.
The publisher said that it was disappointed not to have come to an agreement and remained committed to open access publishing."
