Last year, De Gruyter entered into an agreement with the ANKOS consortium in Turkey which provided access to De Gruyter content to a large number of students, academics and researchers in the country for the first time.
This agreement has now been extended for a further three years and has been expanded the number of universities with access by four institutions to ten in total.
The Ankara Yıldırım Beyazıt Üniversitesi and the Orta Doğu Teknik Üniversitesi (both in Ankara) as well as Sinop Üniversitesi and Kırklareli Üniversitesi have joined the original six universities (İstanbul Üniversitesi, Koç Üniversitesi, Anadolu Üniversitesi, İstanbul Teknik Üniversitesi, Usak Üniversitesi and Boğaziçi Üniversitesi).
Two of the new partners now have access to all German and English language journals and two have chosen access only to the English language journals.
“Two years ago, not one university in Turkey had access to complete journal packages from De Gruyter. We are delighted to be able to both deepen and broaden our cooperation with the ANKOS consortium to serve new partners. It is our stated goal to support Turkish researchers and their research and to help facilitate the link between them and their peers internationally,” said Deniz Can Kurt, Sales Manager for Turkey, the Middle East and Africa at De Gruyter.
