ARL sends letter to Elsevier

Association of Research Libraries recently send off a letter to Elsevier, stating their concerns regarding their article sharing policy.

“This restrictive license impedes collaboration among researchers and scholars.”

“The updated Elsevier article sharing policy imposes excessive restrictions on authors and institutions, employs embargo periods that are
counter to the requirements established by the federal government, and, more fundamentally, impedes the sharing of information by scholars that is so fundamental to the research process.”   ARL PDF
