The Oberwolfach Library terminates contract with Elsevier

The Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach Library cancelled all subscriptions to online journals provided by Elsevier Publishing. From January 2017, the current issues of all Elsevier journals will no longer be accessible online.

The cancellation came about during negotiations with Elsevier which were being conducted by the DEAL project group. The DEAL Project represents more than 100 negotiation mandates by German universities and research institutions. In close consultation with the DEAL project group, some 60 German academic and research institutions decided against prolonging their individual contracts with Elsevier after 2016.
