The framework agreement, with a transition period from January 1 2020 through May 1 2020, provides Dutch researchers with full reading access to almost all Elsevier journals, and allows open access publishing in Elsevier journals. In addition, a range of pilots will be undertaken to develop tools and services in support of (open) science and research intelligence.
