Springer Nature Transformative Agreement

VIVA has started a new transformative (read and publish) agreement with Springer Nature. All participating institutions will now have read access to more than 2,350 journals, which represents a dramatic expansion of content for many of the institutions. Corresponding authors at participating institutions can publish open access in Springer Hybrid journals at no cost from January 1, 2024 through December 31, 2025. No administration is required by researchers or library staff at participating institutions. Institutions will receive monthly reports detailing their respective publishing outputs. A complete list of journals included in the reading and publishing parts of the agreement can be download on the Title List page.

Participating Institutions: All public institutions, as well as the participating private institutions: Eastern Virginia Medical School, Hollins University, University of Richmond, and Washington & Lee University.
