Framework for Provider Agreements Frequently Asked Questions | UMass Amherst Libraries

peter.suber's bookmarks 2021-12-01


"The Framework for Provider Agreements (FPA) is a set of principles to guide the UMass Amherst Libraries when they are working with resource providers (e.g., journal publishers, monograph publishers, data repositories, platforms, infrastructure, etc.).

The FPA also serves as a public declaration relating to the Libraries’ goal of moving towards a more financially sustainable, diverse, accessible, and open system of scholarly communication. We engage in these efforts not only as consumers of intellectual products but also as creators and evaluators. We also recognize that procedures and expectations can vary among academic disciplines, so the principles are meant to be taken as a guide rather than a rigid set of rules."
