'Why Elsevier Is a Library's Best Friend' by Joseph Esposito

Joseph Esposito writes on The Scholarly Kitchen blog, “Elsevier publishes or helps to publish (through arrangements with society publishers) about 2,500 journals. Let’s imagine a world where Elsevier does not exist. In this hypothetical world every one of these journals is independently published. Thus 2,500 journals means 2,500 publishers. In that world, would the cost of these journals be higher or lower than the cost today (IRL—in real life), where Elsevier indubitably does exist and publishes a huge portfolio?”

For more information, read the blog post. The comments after the post are also worth reading.
