The National Library of Luxembourg (BnL) and Cambridge University Press have signed a three-year transformative agreement, which provides access to content from academic journals and covers the cost of open access publishing, signaling a significant step forward in the world of Open Access Publishing.
The agreement, which takes effect immediately, enables researchers and authors from the Consortium Luxembourg (University of Luxembourg, Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology, Luxembourg Institute of Health, National Library of Luxembourg, Max Planck Institute Luxembourg for International, European and Regulatory Procedural Law) to publish their research in Cambridge University Press's prestigious academic journals under open access principles, without being charged with additional publishing fees.
This will not only help in promoting the visibility of the research and academic community of Luxembourg on the global stage, but also provide greater access to the latest research findings.
The transformative agreement marks an important milestone in the Consortium's efforts together with the participating institutions to expand access to scholarly information. By working with Cambridge University Press, the National Library of Luxembourg hopes to advance its mission to support research, innovation and education in Luxembourg and beyond.
In the same vein, the BnL has already signed an agreement with Taylor & Francis Group in 2021.
