The TU Ilmenau already participated in the Germany-wide DEAL agreement with the publishing house Wiley last year, and the university management also signed a corresponding agreement with Springer Nature on 21 April 2020. Thus again, the goal of linking access to the entire portfolio of electronic journals (e-journals) of a major scientific publisher with the sustainable transformation to Open Access publishing was achieved.
There are exceptions for some journals (e.g. ATZ, MTZ, Scientific American, Spektrum der Wissenschaft and journals under the imprint Nature).
Dr Blume is the contact person for all questions regarding the contract and its concrete implementation in the University Library (contact: firstname.lastname@example.org).
