Elsevier’s Alicia Wise on the RWA, the West Wing, and Universal Access

Richard Poynder, Shut, Feb 09, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

What's Elsevier's take on legilsating open access for government-funded research publications? "[W]e don’t believe that the government should tell authors and publishers what we can do with our publications." Well. Maybe government should say "we don't believe in letting Elsevier publish any work that we've funded." I wonder whether they would call that interference. Anyhow, read the rest of these eye-opening comments from Elsevier’s director of universal access Alicia Wise, who posted a defence of the company on the Liblicense mailing list.
