The Boycott of Elsevier

February 27, 2012 Filed under Blog, Featured, Publishing, Reviewing 

As pointed out by Chris Fairless in the comments on a recent blog post of mine, a movement has started to boycott Elsevier because of their aggressive business practices that hurt libraries and restrict information. The petition is called http://thecostofknowledge.com/ and started with a blog post here.

You can take a stand by signing up to publish elsewhere, avoid serving on their editorial boards, and avoid doing reviews for Elsevier-published journals.
