Question

Does the Library's transformative agreement (TA) with publisher have a limited quota per year for Article Processing Charge (APC) waivers? If yes, how does it work?

Yes, and currently this quota applies only to two publishers, Wiley and Springer Nature. For the other publishers that we have agreements with, there is no specific quota in place. For TAs with APC waiver quotas, a limited number of waivers are offered by the publishers on a first-come-first-served basis. When the quota is reached for a given year, further APC waivers will no longer be available until the subsequent year.
