Recommendations for the renegotiations of Springer Compact: Report 4 of the Evaluation of the Swedish Springer Compact agreement

Springer Compact was the first Swedish agreement signed with the intent to offset publishing costs with subscription costs. The agreement is a pilot and the Bibsam steering committee commissioned an evaluation group to evaluate its effects throughout the agreement period (2016-07-01 – 2018-12-31).

The agreement is coming to an end and the renegotiations between Bibsam and Springer Nature are in progress. Report 4 is a continuation of report 3 and includes updated recommendations for the ongoing renegotiations.
