Monopolies in publishing

I'm doing some research about the ethical dimensions of monopolistic
practices in journal publishing, especially with respect to
science-tech-medical publishing (though not necessarily restricted to
those areas).

Can anyone suggest:

--the best possible source(s) defending the view that journal publishing
practices are in fact monopolistic?

--the best possible source(s) defending the view that they are not or,
that if they are, that this is not problematic?

I'm looking for a few good articles or papers on both sides of the issue
that provide a bird's eye perspective on the question.

I'll be working through the material at
but want to see what else I should read on the subject:
