Information World Review har en artikel om att två
högre chefer lämnat Elsevier för Biomed Central

"Elsevier duo say the future is open"

En av dom säger:

“The cost of publishing to research communities is too high.
Once we all get into open access we can start competing
properly. We are seeing lots of publishers trialling OA as
they are under pressure from funding *agencies, such as*
* RCUK and Wellcome Trust*
which want to see
greater value from the research they fund.”

Ett annat positivt tecken på att marknadens total dominans
över den vetenskapliga informationsförsörjningen har börjat
brytas är en i dagarna publicerad rapport från University of
California Libraries:

"The Promise of Value-based Journal Prices and Negotiation"


Comprehensive access to the expanding volume of scholarly
materials necessary for research and teaching is at risk.
Trends in scholarly publishing, especially commercial publisher
business models that result in the high rates of subscription price
increases of the cost of scholarly material, limit the ability to
maintain the breadth and depth of library collections and reduce
exposure to, and impact of, scholars’ work. The University of
California Libraries are key actors in the university’s response
to the economic dysfunctions of scholarly communication
systems,2 developing a program of strategic actions to produce

Redan för några år sedan utmanade dom elva californiska
biblioteken den globala förlagsindustrin vilket inspirerat många
bibliotek och konsortier över hela världen att våga säga nej
till orimliga priser och villkor, nu senast i Norge.
