The Transfer Code of Practice responds to the expressed needs of the scholarly journal community for consistent guidelines to help publishers ensure that journal content remains easily accessible by librarians and readers when there is a transfer between parties, and to ensure that the transfer process occurs with minimum disruption. Publishers are being asked to publicly endorse and follow the Code of Practice which is a set of voluntary "best practices" for the industry but the success of the Transfer Code of Practice also depends on librarians asking publishers to endorse the Code and making sure they follow it. There is also a UKSG Transfer Notification email list and blog where Transfer publishers post notices of journal ownership changes. This webinar will provide an introduction and overview of the Code and notification service and an update on how the project is developing.
