SUNY is currently in the midst of system-wide contract renewal negotiations with Elsevier, the largest publisher of scientific and medical journals, about our subscription to ScienceDirect. SUNY’s ScienceDirect contract with Elsevier expires on December 31, 2019. You are invited to attend one of the scheduled town hall meetings to receive updates on the state of negotiations with Elsevier and discuss alternative means of access to impacted journals in the event that there is no agreement with Elsevier about ScienceDirect.
Earlier this year, the University of California System ended negotiations with Elsevier without an agreement on terms for a contract renewal. Similar negotiations with Elsevier involving other US and European institutions have also met an impasse. SUNY University Faculty Senate recently passed a resolution in full support for SUNY’s negotiations for a fair and reasonable contract with Elsevier.
Bookings are closed for this event.
