Reasons to be grateful

For-profit journal giant Elsevier is messaging researchers who published in its journals last year, with “heartfelt thanks”

“Less ‘heartfelt’ as ‘walletfelt,’ “ a learned reader remarks.

Elsevier’s business model is based on researchers contributing articles without payment, to journals the company variously charges people to read or publish in. The division of Elsevier’s owner, Relx, that includes the publisher had an operating profit of £1bn in 2021.
