The University of California Breaks Ties With Elsevier

Lindsay Ellis reports for The Chronicle of Higher Education, “The University of California system is calling it quits with Elsevier, one of the biggest academic publishers in the world, after months of contract negotiations.”

She continues, “The announcement that the 10-campus system would cancel its Elsevier subscriptions represents a win for open-access advocates. And it may signal to other academic libraries that pay millions of dollars in subscriptions to large journal publishers that a retreat from those costly mass subscriptions is workable.” However, it may pose a challenge for professors: “As they conduct their research, faculty members read articles that are often published behind the paywalls of subscription-based journals. Without access to those articles through a university library, their work could suffer.”
