[InetBib] Apropos "Elsevier latest developments"

Wie freut sich doch der Aktionär in mir, wenn die ETH Zürich der RELX Group 
(Ehemals Reed Elsevier) die Gelegenheit offeriert, ein bisschen Kundennähe zu 

Wie weit weg Elsevier tatsächlich von den eigentlich Bedürfnissen der 
Bibliotheken weg ist zeigt folgendes Statement aus dem Open Access Newsletter 
der Niederlande:

Elsevier: no negotiations
Negotiations with Elsevier have stalled. Elsevier is only willing to move 
towards open access if the universities pay for both the right to read and 
publish articles. This would not be feasible in budgetary terms.“

Tja, nicht zu vergessen ist, dass man auch in der Schweiz um eine Verrechnung 
von APC und Subskriptionen angefragt hat und dies Elsevier - immerhin global 
konsequent - abgelehnt hat. Das zahlt sich für die Aktionäre von Elsevier aus, 
wie dem Jahresbericht 2014 der RELX Group zu entnehmen ist: 
 (S. 17)

Key business trends were positive for the year with underlying research 
subscription revenue growth around half a percentage point ahead of the prior 
year. Electronic revenueswhich now account for around 74% of the total 
continued to see good growth across segments.

In primary research, article submissions to subscription journals and usage 
continued to grow in double digits, and journal quality, as measured by 
relative impact factor, was maintained. Subscription revenue growth rates were 
around half a percentage point higher than in the prior year, driven by 
increased volume and new sales.

The volume of “author-pays” or “author’s-funder-pays” articles grew strongly 
from a small base. We continued to launch new journals, and now operate over 
100 stand-alone author-pays open access journals alongside our sponsored 
article option in over 1,600 subscription journals. We saw continued good 
growth in databases and tools, as well as in electronic reference and 
education. Print book and pharma promotion revenues continued to decline, 
albeit at a slightly lower rate than in the prior year.
