SPARC Reacts to Clarivate's Completed Acquisition of ProQuest

Clarivate announced on Dec. 1, 2021, that it has completed its acquisition of ProQuest. SPARC (the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition) issued a statement in response, which reads, in part:

The merger, which follows review by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), increases concerns over the negative impacts that continued consolidation across the research enterprise will have on the academic community. 

SPARC filed a detailed antitrust brief with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) in October, which outlined extensive antitrust concerns with the merger and within the broader research analytics and library services platform markets.

For more information, read the statement.
