Subject:     Price of Academic Journals

Stanford University has held public discussions for the past couple of 
years about the price of academic journals what Stanford faculty might 
do about it. Since this may be of interest to a wider audience, I have 
supplied a link below so that you may see what was discussed at the most 
recent colloquium. It begins:

 >>Although there was little clear consensus about strategy among 
presenters, faculty and staff at a Nov. 6 colloquium on issues in 
scholarly publishing, there were two points on which almost everyone 
agreed: The high costs for journal subscriptions charged by commercial 
publishers in recent years are unsustainable, and the ability to 
distribute articles electronically has fundamentally changed academic 
research and publishing.<<

If this is of interest, you may read the article here:

All the best,
Mike Jensen
