Good morning, everyone.


I’m interested to know if anyone has read this article yet:


Or the original research here:


It’s not exactly surprising, but it’s interesting to read from an economics perspective.  This has spurred much discussion here at Rollins, and we will be conducting an analysis of our e-journal package payments in comparison with the mean bundle prices reported in the research.  We’re also re-evaluating our licenses regarding non-disclosure agreements.    

I would love to hear your thoughts and whether or not this is a cause for concern and/or action at your institution.
