CSU Elsevier Negotiations

CSU Elsevier Negotiations

The California State University libraries are beginning negotiations to renew their contract with Elsevier, one of the world’s largest scientific, technical, medical, and social science publishers. Elsevier has built a business model underwritten by publicly funded research, faculty scholarship, faculty peer review, and faculty editorial board management. Elsevier then charges libraries annual or multiyear subscription fees to buy access to journals that exist only because of the public research funding and faculty work effort.
