Accucoms secures the first Read and Publish deal for Future Science Group (FSG) outside of Europe in South Korea

“The Read & Publish Deal was our first outside of Europe. KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute of Science & Technology) have been a long standing customer of ours and we hope this agreement will allow us to work closer together. KAIST now have access to read more of our content as well as having their articles automatically made open access for even more people to see. We hope this is the start of many more to come as this agreement is great for universities that want to read a wide variety content with the ability to publish articles for a fixed fee”. Stuart Steele, Subscriptions Manager, Future Science Group

“KAIST has been a customer of Future Science Group for many years. Last year, FSG provided me with information about their Read & Publish deal which I thought was a very attractive. I spoke to the person in charge at KAIST and they finally accepted the proposal. Now, the users of KAIST can be an author of any of FSG’s journals and the published articles will be made open access. Furthermore, KAIST users can access all of FSG journal articles. Many publishers have been introducing transformative deals into the South Korean market. It’s still a big step in South Korea so universities are having difficulties finding a suitable model for their users.  It was a great opportunity for both parties and I could say it was a real win-win proposal”. SeongHwi Jeon, Commercial Manager South Korea, Accucoms
