The MPDL is pleased to announce its ongoing participation in the Germany-wide transformative open access agreements with Wiley and Springer Nature. On behalf of the Max Planck Society, the MPDL has again signed up for the two agreements, ensuring that Max Planck researchers can continue to publish their work open access at no cost to them, while also maintaining access to the publishers’ journal portfolios.

The opt-in agreements with two publishers were negotiated by the DEAL Konsortium, on behalf of the Alliance of Science Organizations in Germany. Having achieved the required institutional participation rates, the contracts are now officially in place, running from 1 January 2024 through 31 December 2028.
