Negotiations have been underway since 2018 at the national level by swissuniversities with the publishing houses Elsevier, Springer Nature and Wiley, as a part of the Swiss National Strategy on Open Access. The objective is to define a new "Read & Publish" license model, namely a license that covers both the consultation of journal articles (Read) and the costs of publishing in Open Access in these same journals (Publish). swissuniversities approach also aims to stem the constant rise in prices, as well as the pressure from publishers to subscribe to 'bundles' of journals ("Big Deals").
