Our Two Kickstarters of Yesterday’s First Exercise :

The Cost of Knowledge : towards an Academic Spring in Science and Maths?

24 Feb

The post that launched the polemic – by Cambridge University Mathematician and Fields Medal Winner Timothy Gowers.

The Economist’s article that has been distributed to you yesterday  and that tells the whole story about the polemic and the boycott.

The website “The Cost of Knowledge”  /Researchers taking a stand against Elsevier” referring to the polemic. Here is what stands on its current front page:

“Academics have protested against Elsevier’s business practices for years with little effect. These are some of their objections:

  1. They charge exorbitantly high prices for subscriptions to individual journals.
  2. In the light of these high prices, the only realistic option for many libraries is to agree to buy very large “bundles”, which will include many journals that those libraries do not actually want. Elsevier thus makes huge profits by exploiting the fact that some of their journals are essential.
  3. They support measures such as SOPA, PIPA and the Research Works Act, that aim to restrict the free exchange of information.”
