France: Couperin does not renew the national agreement with Springer

infodocketGARY's bookmarks 2018-04-01


This comes after 13 months of intense negotiations with SpringerNature, conducted by the National Consortium representing over 250 institutions of higher education, research and health: universities, schools, research organizations including the CNRS, hospitals such as Hospices Civils de Lyon.

Negotiations have stalled as a result of the divergence of economic approach between the publisher and the higher education and research institutions.

The lack of agreement between SpringerNature and consortium is for the publisher a shortfall of over € 5M per year [$6.15 Million/USD]; inaccessibility of Springer journals in the French research units will have on these reviews a negative impact in terms of citations and articles submissions.
