'Interpreting Elsevier's Acquisition of Aries Systems' by Kent Anderson

Kent Anderson writes on The Scholarly Kitchen blog, “Last Thursday, news of Elsevier’s acquisition of Aries Systems broke, and the reactions were varied. Some boasted that they’d predicted moves along these lines. Others speculated about a possible boycott of Elsevier and Aries journals. And some decried the lack of ‘independent’ options in the space Aries helped to create—online manuscript submission and management systems.”

He notes that “Elsevier’s acquisitions have been paving a path into data and analytics for a while now (Mendeley, Plum), with some strong content-source positioning (bePress and SSRN) adding even more to their growing portfolio of interesting strategic products. None has had the combination of strong recurring revenues and high switching costs of Aries Systems, however, which sets this acquisition apart in my mind.”
