The University of California Is Negotiating With Elsevier

MacKenzie Smith, university librarian and vice provost of digital scholarship at the University of California (UC)–Davis, and Dennis J. Ventry Jr., professor of law and vice chair on the UC–Davis Academic Senate’s University Committee on Library and Scholarly Communication, published an open letter to the UC–Davis academic community regarding the university’s relationship to Elsevier.

They write, “The University of California is renegotiating its systemwide licenses with some of the world’s largest scholarly journal publishers, including industry giant Elsevier. These negotiations may create significant changes in our access to new articles published in Elsevier journals as soon as January 1, 2019.” UC–Davis aims to “constrain the runaway costs of journal subscriptions … [and] make it easier and more affordable for UC authors to publish their research with open access.” Smith and Ventry warn that if an agreement is not reached, the university community “may lose access to future articles in Elsevier’s journals through their ScienceDirect platform.”

For more information, read the letter.
