Transformative agreements with scholarly journals publishers

We call a transformative agreement a contract negotiated between a consortium or a university with a publisher of scholarly journals where the subscription model that was in force until then is changed. The terms change from "paying to read and to publish in open access." For the author of the article, it means being given to choice to have a free or lower APC.
