UC terminates negotiation with publishing giant Elsevier

As a leader in the universal movement toward open access to publicly funded research, the University of California terminated its further subscriptions with Elsevier, the world’s largest scientific publisher. Despite months of bond negotiations, Elsevier was reluctant to meet UC’s key goal: acquiring universal open access to UC research to enable users to view it excluding any charges- as well as to restrain the rising costs associated with for-profit journals. Under Elsevier’s new proposed terms, the publisher would have charged UC authors large publication fees on top of the university’s multi-million dollar subscription, subsequently increasing the cost to the University and greater profits for Elsevier.
