Elsevier and the Research Works Act

02/28/2012 4:43 PM | Jon Crossno (Administrator)
Elsevier posted a news release on their website yesterday announcing their withdrawal of support for the Research Works Act. The bill has been withdrawn in the U.S. house by the sponsors. I suppose it would be unprofessional to skip around singing, 'ding dong the bill is dead', so I will refrain from doing so.

Inside Higher Ed has an interesting article on this development titled, 'A Significant Flinch'.

The Research Works Act was discussed in an earlier post, as was a scientist organized boycott against Elsevier.
