Library Journal journal publishing survey

Choosing Sides--Periodical Price Survey 2005 
By Lee C. Van Orsdel & Kathleen Born - Library Journal, 4/15/2005

headline-grabbing news of research libraries balking at publisher deals,
governments investigating the scientific publishing system, and reformers
touting author-pays business models, has settled into an uneasy state of

(scientific, technical, and medical) publishers, and budget-starved
libraries continue to cut journals they can't afford. Beneath the surface,
however, the tide of change runs strong."
