Hungary: EISZ and Elsevier Work Towards an Open Access Pilot Agreement, MOU Signed
Hungarian Electronic Information Service National Programme (EISZ) and Elsevier have signed a Memorandum of Understanding and Letter of Intent, as they move towards finalizing a new innovative pilot agreement for research access and Open Access publishing in Hungary.
As a result, EISZ consortium member institutions and their affiliated researchers across Hungary now have immediate access to ScienceDirect, Elsevier’s leading platform of peer-reviewed scholarly literature, as well as SciVal, the research performance tool, and Scopus, the world’s largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature.
Further details will be announced following the conclusion of the contracting process, which will facilitate continued reading and support cost neutral open access publishing by Hungarian researchers in Elsevier journals.
