Sorbonne University is a member of the Couperin consortium for the negotiation of electronic resources. Find a regularly updated status report on negotiations concerning our subscriptions (updated: 30 January 2020).

Background

Nearly half of all subscriptions to Sorbonne University's electronic resources, including all of the most expensive scientific journal packages, are part of the Couperin consortium negotiation framework. The Couperin consortium is an association bringing together more than 260 institutions of Higher Education and Research (the ESR) whose main goal is to evaluate, negotiate and organise the purchase of electronic resources for the benefit of its members. If a negotiation fails because the initial objectives have not been met, institutions may negotiate their subscription with the publisher/supplier on an individual basis. If the offer is validated by Couperin, they are free to refuse it.
2018 was a turning point in the document policy of Sorbonne University, which adopted a firm stance with regard to the pricing practices of the major scientific journal publishers, including in the case of validated Couperin offers.
These practices are based on an annual and continuous inflation of the subscription price with a view to guaranteeing the publisher a constant increase—at the very least—in its turnover. Above all, the subscription price generally fails to take into account either the growing share of open access content or the expenses incurred by institutions for the publication of open access articles (APC).

In this context, notable for Sorbonne University's commitment to open science, negotiations with publishers are becoming tougher and can sometimes lead to disruption, and therefore to the unsubscribing of certain resources and the removal of access.

Latest negotiations completed:

  • Elsevier (Freedom Collection, Cell Press, French Medical Library) (national license 2019-2022)
  • ACS Publications (contrat 2020)
  • APS Journals (contrat 2020)
  • Proquest « Sciences Humaines » (contrat 2020-2022)
  • ACM Library (contrat 2020)

Last negotiations rejected by SU:

  • Bundles of Springer magazine (2018-2021) - access cut in 2019
  • IEL base of the IEEE - access cut off in 2019
  • Nature magazines - access cut off in 2020

The faculty of medicine is closed to the public and operates according to a business continuity plan (research, pedagogy, administrative) since Monday, March 16, 2020. The closure of the faculty to the public effectively results in the cancellation of all courses in face-to-face. Research activities and vital administrative activities are maintained, under the conditions specified by the university administration in the Business Continuity Plan. Beyond the end of classroom lessons, university libraries are closed. The situation is constantly changing, staff and students are invited to consult their emails, the university intranet and the FAQ to stay informed.

All users (students and staff) have access to more precise information on a dedicated page:
