“Electronic publication now enables preparation, distribution, access, and archiving of articles at a
fraction of the cost of the comparable print publications of earlier times. However, the
subscription costs to university libraries of many major journals do not reflect these reduced
The federal government makes massive investments in researchers, staff, and facilities to advance
knowledge; publishers do not. Universities similarly make big investments in research. University
faculty generally are the authors, editors, and reviewers of the articles coming out of that
research. To get their articles published, faculty usually must transfer significant copyrights to the
publishers. Then the publishers sell back to the universities the very content they as a group
produced, and at steadily higher subscription prices. The system is fundamentally broken.
