[google transl.] Open hybrid access in Italy: just a matter of "nudge"?
In the first days of last October we tried to draw the attention of researchers, students, librarians and administrators of universities and research institutions to an aspect of the current CARE contract with the publisher Elsevier, the so-called "Pilot Open Access Gold". This contract, which is now very late, in terms of duration and content, compared to European and international practice, allows Elsevier to profit from the so-called double dipping, because it provides that the same institution can pay more money to put open access to some articles in magazines for which it already pays a subscription. For this very reason, we hoped that the authors and their institutions would reject this option, preferring the green way, i.e. the subsequent deposit of a version of their texts in institutional and disciplinary archives, without additional costs compared to subscriptions. A discussion of the OA-Italy mailing list, however, leads us to fear that it is not at all easy for a researcher to make this choice.
