Over the past few years, Jisc (on behalf of UK universities) has been negotiating with Elsevier to reduce subscription costs, and to ensure full and immediate open access to UK research published by Elsevier.
On March 23rd 2022 it was announced that UK universities have reached a three-year agreement with Elsevier providing both unlimited open access publishing and access to paywalled journal articles for a significant reduction on current institutional spend. The agreement will provide unlimited open access publishing at no cost to the author in eligible Elsevier subscription journals, including the Lancet and Cell Press titles.
