Information meeting on access to Elsevier articles

The Swedish research libraries, including Uppsala University Library, are cancelling their journal contract through Bibsam Consortium with the academic publisher Elsevier. The contract will terminate as of 30 June 2018.

Read more on the University Library website.

Welcome to a meeting where the University Library will give information about how researchers at Uppsala University can get access to articles after 30 June. We also hope to provide news from the negotiations with Elsevier.

Researchers from the participating organisations will continue to have access to articles published between January 1995 and June 2018 under the terms of the current contract, but Elsevier will not provide access to subscription content published after 30 June 2018. 

The University Library will try its best to help researchers to access articles published after 30 June by suggesting other available ways to find open articles and through Interlibrary loans wherever possible. The library will also remove the fee for all article copies for researchers at Uppsala University on July 1.
