Hungarian Electronic Information Service National Programme (EISZ) and Elsevier today agreed a new pilot license for research access and Open Access publishing in Hungary.

The agreement also facilitates a cost-neutral transition to Open Access and enables Hungarian researchers from EISZ affiliated institutions to publish their research Open Access without researchers having to pay an APC.
In addition, EISZ and Elsevier have reached a three-year agreement to enable Hungarian institutions and their affiliated researchers to benefit from access to Scopus, the world’s largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature, as well as SciVal, the research performance tool. Access to Scopus and SciVal will support Hungarian research in benchmarking its performance against more than 10,700 research institutions and their associated researchers from across the world, supporting Hungarian academic programs.
