What are Transformative Agreements?

Transformative Agreements describe contracts negotiated between institutions (libraries, national and regional consortia) and publishers that aim to transform the business model underlying scholarly journal publishing, moving from one based on subscriptions to one in which publishers are remunerated a fair price for their open access publishing services. See Plan S FAQs. In Australasia, transformative agreements are negotiated by the Council of Australian University Librarians.
