Over the past two years, more than 150 German research institutions have formed a coalition to encourage scientific publishers to conclude new licensing agreements for Open Access scientific content. The negotiations of the DEAL consortia are the most comprehensive Open Access action to date in Germany and possibly worldwide. In July it was announced that the negotiations between DEAL and Elsevier, the largest scientific publisher, were suspended for the second time. Although Open Access seems to be gaining speed, it is still unclear what the future will look like.
