SUBJECT: [SCHOLCOMM] Max Planck Society cancels Elsevier agreement: OA
via Projekt DEAL or no deal 

**with apologies for cross-posting** 

The Max Planck Society, one of the world's largest research performing
organizations, counting 14,000 scientists who publish 12K new research
articles a year--around 1500 of which in Elsevier journals, has mandated
the Max Planck Digital Library to DISCONTINUE THE SOCIETY’S ELSEVIER
SUBSCRIPTION WHEN THE CURRENT AGREEMENT EXPIRES ON DECEMBER 31, 2018. 

With this move the Society joins nearly 200 universities and research
institutions in Germany [1] who have already cancelled their individual
agreements with Elsevier and affirmed their support of the
national-level Projekt DEAL [2] negotiations seeking _transformative
agreements [3]_ as a strategy to drive LARGE SCALE TRANSITION OF
SCHOLARLY PUBLISHING TO OPEN ACCESS.  

As no sustainable offer meeting DEAL's fundamental criteria for
transformation has been forthcoming, negotiations are suspended and
Elsevier cut off access last July. Despite the immediate implication of
lack of access to new Elsevier content from January 1, 2019, the Max
Planck Society's researchers and highest level administration provided
their full support in the decision. "DEAL is fully in line with the
objectives of the OA2020 Initiative [4], which is strongly supported by
the Max Planck Society," emphasized MPS President Martin Stratmann.
