TIB successfully negotiates licence for SPIE Digital L10.02.2015 - (idw) Technische Informationsbibliothek (TIB)
Attractive conditions for participating university libraries and research institutions in Germany | German Research Foundation supports SPIE Alliance licence for three years
The Alliance licence for the SPIE Digital Library, which the German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB) negotiated with SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, came into force on 1 January 2015. The SPIE Digital Library contains 420,000 scientific contributions from conference proceedings, periodicals and electronic books covering areas such as optics, photonics, biomedicine and microelectronics. Some 18,000 articles are added to the collection each year.
Conditions and extra services for participating institutions
Special conditions and extra services for consortium partners was the outcome of intense negotiations between TIB and SPIE: a discount of up to 30 per cent off the SPIE list price will be granted, the annual price cap will be limited to a maximum of three per cent, and authors from participating institutions will be able to post their articles in a repository of their own choice without an embargo period. In addition, SPIE will refund article processing charges (APCs) if the author opted for the Golden Road (Open Access) for the publication in question.
Cooperation between SPIE and German university libraries and research institutions enables more researchers from Germany to gain access to the SPIE collection, which is characterised by a high standard of professionalism and a high level of relevance, stated Eugene Arthurs, CEO of SPIE. Even now, a great many SPIE contributions originate from German authors. Thanks to the conditions secured by TIB, the number of German authors is bound to increase in the future, Arthurs continued.
DFG assumes 25 per cent of costs incurred by consortium participants
This way, the consortium participants benefit not only from the negotiated conditions and extra services, but also from the support of the Alliance licence by the German Research Foundation, underlined Uwe Rosemann, Director of TIB. Within the Alliance Licences programme of the German Research Foundation (DFG), TIB had submitted an application for funding of the SPIE Alliance licence, which was approved. Consequently, DFG assumes 25 per cent of the licence fees incurred by each participating institution.
TIB managed to recruit 21 consortium partners for the 2015 Alliance licence namely 14 higher education institutions and seven research institutions. The opt-in model enables new participants to join the licence for the licensing years 2016 and 2017.
