Q: Is the ILL number relying on CCC pricing?A: The ILL price defaults to $17 (based on the average from the literature), but you can set it to the price you spend for your own institution.
Heather Piwowar

Springer Nature next, then T&F, then priority TBD based on customer feedback
Caitlin Carter

Question was: Which other publishers will be added this summer?
Heather Piwowar
29:58
plan is all publishers, it’s just a matter of what order they are added.
Lisa Hinchliffe
30:41
So, at issue isn’t the % of the content in a journal that is OA but the amount of predicted use that can be met by the OA content?
Lisa Hinchliffe
31:08
That’s how a lower % OA journal (Cell) can still be a better value on cost/use?
Heather Piwowar
31:22
don’t totally understand. let’s hold that one for in person asking so we can clarify?
Lisa Hinchliffe
31:34
ok
Lisa Hinchliffe
32:45
I’m happy to unmute when it is the right moment. Will watch for your cue

Diff Q - re: “plan is all publishers, it’s just a matter of what order they are added.” All subscription/hybrid? Or is there also a plan to help model the offerings to libraries from Pure Publish publishers like PLOS>
Jason Priem

@lisa good q. i didn’t get a chance to cover the part of the tool that covers Publish costs. we do have a section that estimates your institution’s APC spend. over time we want to expand that, to look at OA publishers as well.
Jason Priem
38:31
@kate right now we estimate the total APC spend from authors at your institution. that part is a bit rough yet, since user interest has been focused more on the Read side of things. but it’s a step in the right direction, we hope…there is useful data there.

Nathan, how hard was it to get perpetual access info from Elsevier? We've had difficulty getting a clean list. Sorry if you addressed, my internet burped.
Jason Priem
42:32
@sunshine i’m not 100% clear on your question, i’m sorry! i can say that the model is including all your usage in the last 10 years, and it’s also accounting for what you have already paid for and purchased via perpetual access.
Robin Sinn
43:00
THanks!
Jason Priem
43:59
@sunshine happy to discuss more, if you’d like, during the global q&a time! perpetual access and backfile content is a super important part of the equation, so it’s a great question.
Tim Stedman
45:18
What is the timeframe for adding the larger publishers to Unsub and at the moment is it just Elsevier? apologies if I misunderstood the earlier Q and A
Jason Priem
46:24
@tim great question. we currently support elsevier and wiley. springer nature is coming in a few weeks, and then t&f. from there, we’ll be following demand from our users.
Jason Priem
47:16
@tim we expect to have support of some kind for all publishers by the end of the year.
Tim Stedman
47:32
thanks!
Sunshine J Carter

@jason we can discuss at Q&A

Robin Sinn

Is green OA considered, too?
Lisa Hinchliffe
59:40
Thanks - yep!
Lisa Hinchliffe
01:00:25
My lightbulb moment here is that one library can’t use the data from another library to anticipate the fulfillment rate!
Heather Piwowar
01:01:55
Robin, yes green OA is considered too.
Robin Sinn
01:02:12
Thanks Heather.
Heather Piwowar
01:02:20
Robin, there is a setting for excluding non-peer-reviewed versions too, in case you are concerned about that.

@jennifer we assume full perpetual access by default. then you can upload your own custom dates, and you can try different sets of dates if you want.
Robin Sinn

Thank you all
Peter McCracken
