BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that UFS recommends and requests that if Elsevier does not negotiate a contract that is deemed fair and reasonable by SUNY negotiators, the Chancellor direct the SUNY negotiators to follow the lead of UC and the aforementioned European universities and not enter into a new contract with Elsevier, and instead pursue alternative means with campus presidents to access scholarly works that are critical to the learning, teaching, and research of the SUNY community;

"Max Planck Society Discontinues Agreement with Elsevier; Stands Firm with Projekt DEAL Negotiations"

Posted in License Agreements/Contracts, Open Access, Open Science, Publishing, Scholarly Journals, Serials Crisis on December 20th, 2018

The Max Planck Digital Library has released Max Planck Society Discontinues Agreement with Elsevier; Stands Firm with Projekt DEAL Negotiations.

Here's an excerpt:

The President and scientific council members of the Max Planck Society (MPS), one of the world's largest research performing organizations, counting 14,000 scientists who publish 12K new research articles a year—around 1500 of which in Elsevier journals, have mandated the Max Planck Digital Library to discontinue their Elsevier subscription when the current agreement expires on December 31, 2018. With this move the Society joins nearly 200 universities and research institutions in Germany who have already cancelled their individual agreements with Elsevier in the course of 2016 and 2017 and affirmed their support of the national licensing framework Projekt DEAL, led by the German Rector’s Conference.

"Death By 1,000 Cuts: Periodicals Price Survey 2018"

Posted in Publishing, Scholarly Journals, Serials Crisis on April 24th, 2018

Stephen Bosch et al. have published "Death By 1,000 Cuts: Periodicals Price Survey 2018 in Library Journal."

Here's an excerpt:

The journals marketplace is a mature market in which demand and supply are in equilibrium. While the original e-journal big deal pricing model of maintaining the current spend with a publisher plus a pro rata amount to access additional content did expand offerings to libraries, it did not address the underlying funding problems and in many cases made them worse. The growth of Gold Open Access… addressed access to content but compounded budget issues by adding additional costs.

Red Light, Green Light: Aligning the Library to Support Licensing

Posted in License Agreements/Contracts, Publishing, Reports and White Papers, Research Libraries, Scholarly Books, Scholarly Communication, Scholarly Journals, Serials Crisis on August 17th, 2017

Ithaka S+R has released Red Light, Green Light: Aligning the Library to Support Licensing.

Here's an excerpt:

There is widespread frustration within the academic library community with the seemingly uncontrollable price increases of e-resources, especially of licensed bundles of scholarly journals. The scholarly communications movement has vastly expanded academic and indeed public access to scholarly content. Yet prices for certain scholarly resources continue to outpace budget increases, and librarians do not feel in control of budgets and pricing. What if libraries found ways to bring together the whole library behind the objective of stabilizing or reducing what they pay?
