SCONUL response to Jisc's Critical Review on Transitional Agreements

19 March 2024      Lisa McLaren, Deputy Director

Jisc released their Critical Review of Transitional Agreements in March 2024, with a webinar chaired by Ann Rossiter, Executive Director, SCONUL, to outline their key findings. The report is a  comprehensive piece of work, that goes into great depth on the enduring impact of these deals on the UK and global scholarly communications landscape.

SCONUL wishes to address a number of these points and has written a statement, as well as our co-chair Libby Homer authoring a piece for WonkHE.

SCONUL hopes that our recent Content Forum and this report will enable our members to consider the next steps for academic content and that alongside Jisc, we can deliver real change for the sector.
