Research rolls-on without Elsevier

It’s a year since U Cal told journal-giant Elsevier to file its subscription contract where citations don’t shine – and yet research continues

 University of California student paper the Daily Bruin reports the network’s library management “has not received extensive feedback from faculty or students since Elsevier revoked access.” And while Elsevier dug in against the university’s demand that articles by its academics be published open-access in the company’s journals U Cal is reaching agreement with other publishers.

U Cal itself is not commenting at least not directly, which might be because it wants Elsevier to get the message without jeopardising a re-start of talks, (CMM January 29).
