Springer has entered into a five-year renewal agreement with the Consorcio para el Acceso a la Información Científica Electrónica (CINCEL) in Chile. Unlike prior negotiated arrangements, says the publisher, this new deal extends access to Springer’s published research to more than twice as many institutions. 

The national consortium of CINCEL negotiates subscriptions to scientific journals, e-books and databases on behalf of its original 26 members, made up mostly of universities, along with other research centers in Chile. Under the new national agreement, researchers, students and faculty at all the prior participating members, as well as over 45 additional institutions, will now have access to Springer’s Americas Collection of journals. The more than 1,500 titles included in the licence are now available to every major research institution in Chile. 

'Springer has always been a valuable partner to CINCEL because of the high quality of its content, and because they are flexible enough to meet the needs of our members at a price that is manageable for the consortium,' said María Soledad Bravo-Marchant, secretaria ejecutiva for CINCEL. 'We are very happy with this new agreement and look forward to continuing a relationship that has been so beneficial to our researchers and universities.'
