LIBER, the Association of European Research Libraries, has recently published a new strategy for publisher negotiations containing five open access principles. The new strategy aligns with OA2020 and their mission outlined in ”Expression of interest in the large-scale implementation of open access to scholarly journals,” which all Nordic consortia have signed.
