Hellenic Academic Libraries Link Agreements termination

Hellenic Academic Libraries Link Agreements termination

24 June 2015

HEAL-Link informs you of the termination of the agreements with all publishers as of 01.07.2015 due to the inability to collect the remaining half of the budget for the current year, despite the efforts that have been made and are continued, in cooperation with the Board of Rectors and the Ministry of Education.

We remind you that HEAL-Link had asked the publishers to extend the date of opt out from 30th of March to 30 th of June, reassuring them for their future repayment for these six months, a proposal that had been accepted (see. corresponding announcement at 02/04/2015)

However, due to unfavorable economic conditions, HEAL-Link has pending econimc issues with some publishers even for the years 2013 and 2014.

Currently HEAL-Link is obliged to proceed with the termination of the agreements, whilst seeking to maintain access for three months (grace period), with the hope that meanwhile budget might be found. Of course this may not be acceptable to all publishers, and access might be cut immediately.

Additionally, HEAL-Link will seek to ensure access for years that have been already paid, but also to find funds to maintain access to online resources for HEAL-Link members.

Opt-out of the Agreements

02 April 2015

According to the License Agreements HEAL-Link has signed with publishers for the years 2013-2015, HEAL-Link has the option to opt-out until the 31st of March of every year, if it can not meet its financial obligations for the current year.

Taking this into account, and the fact that for 2015 HEAL-Link has only secured half of the required annual budget (the Conference of Rectors, the Presidents of Technological Educational Institutes and the Minister of Education have been informed for this situation) HEAL-Link decided the following:

Asked the publishers to extend the opt-out date to 30th June 2015 (instead of 31st of March 2015). The publishers will be paid for the six months of 2015 and whatever outstanding payments from previous years. Most publishers have agreed to this proposal and HEAL-Link will have perpetual rights to the content published until 30th June of 2015.

The following publishers have agreed to move the opt-out date to 30th June 2015:

  • ACM
  • AIP
  • CUP
  • Elsevier
  • Emerald
  • IOP
  • Lippincott Williams & Wilkins
  • OUP
  • Project MUSE
  • PsycARTICLES (APA)
  • Sage
  • Springer
  • T&F
  • Wiley

Publishers that HEAL-Link opt-out for 2015 are the following:
