Resources for Publishers

Getting Started

If you are a publisher or equivalent who is interested in working with CAUL, please read through the following resources. Once you have done this you may contact the CAUL Office via email with any questions, or a proposal (please do not call the office unless you have scheduled a time in advance). Due to the small capacity of the CAUL office, responses may be delayed significantly depending on the time of year.

Working with CAUL

Consortia Manager

ConsortiaManager is an application for storing data in one place and enables its users to estimate the value of each journal subscription. From August, 2017 (the beginning of the 2018 renewals season) CAUL/CEIRC commenced using ConsortiaManager to process its publisher/vendor offers and renewals.

All publisher information previously located on the CAUL Website is now updated within ConsortiaManager. Access to ConsortiaManager is limited to our members only, however you may request a screenshot of the page containing your own information.

Current offers

See here for a list of all current offers. Comprehensive information including proposals, licenses and other offer documentation is made available to our members via ConsortiaManager.

Contact Details

CEIRC Members are comprised of three categories - the Australian (CAUL) and New Zealand (CONZUL) universities  - and our external participants, from other higher education and research institutions and government departments in Australia and New Zealand. Wherever possible, all interested participants are included in CAUL-negotiated agreements with publishers and other suppliers - in some cases, non-academic institutions may be excluded or offered different terms.

You can find up to date contact details for Australian CEIRC contacts here, each entry also includes current FTE & IP ranges:

Licenses

Model Licences

LicensingModels.org (The new name for LicensingModels.com). Model standard licenses for use by publishers, librarians and subscription agents for electronic resources. (John Cox Associates) Updated 27/10/09 Notes on changes: referring to the Academic Single Institution Licence in the following; parallel changes have been made to all the licences, though the clause numbers may vary a little. 

  1. Unnecessary provisions have been removed: the last clause on resolving disputes by an ‘expert’ (clause 12) has been removed as being superfluous.  References to “agent” and “Publisher’s Representative”  have been removed as they have, in the event, proved to be unnecessary. 
  2. Clause 1 Definitions now includes definitions of Learning Object, Text Mining and Virtual Learning Environment. 
  3. New usage rights in respect of these definitions will be found in clauses 3.2.3, 3.2.4, and 3.2.6.
