Update on Elsevier negotiations

MIT and Elsevier have agreed to continue negotiations for a new journal contract. MIT is seeking a contract that honors the principles of the MIT Framework for Publisher Contracts and is pleased that Elsevier has agreed to develop an offer that satisfies our commitment to copyright retention for authors and adherence to MIT’s open access policy.

The MIT Libraries have signed a memorandum of agreement that ensures the MIT community will continue to have direct access to Elsevier content through June 2020 to provide ample time for Elsevier to develop a new proposal.
