The Cost of Knowledge

A website that maintains a list of those who have chosen to boycott Elsevier (the scientific literature publisher) because of excessively high subscription charges. Some of the researchers have added their own comments:

Science requires the exchange of ideas. Anything that impedes that exchange obstructs progress. Elsevier’s practices are anti-science.

As a researcher I’m public servant. Society pays me for education and research activities. Results belong to society.
