"...Reports on the DEAL project have been numerous, on the project’s aims as well as the negotiation progress (or rather negotiation deadlock).4 Our primary interest was different though. The endeavor is of high relevance for the current and future publishing landscape in German academia. How can it be accomplished? Which wheels have to mesh to complete the project successfully? What do the negotiations require from people and institutions involved? We have interviewed Bernhard Mittermaier, member of the DEAL negotiating team. The interview was led and translated by Michaela Voigt and Maxi Kindling.
