Hi guys, I hope everyone's keeping well. I'm doing a bit of research in trying to understand library budgets and journals etc. One of the things that continually amazes me is the extent to which "paid" journals work vs open access (a topic which has been well addressed during the Open access week here in Cambridge). That aside, I did wonder if anyone had any thoughts about journals and pricing. It seems to me that despite the economic downturn effecting library budgets, some of the biggest publishers are still looking for significant price increases both on print and electronic (the best I've heard of is flat pricing...). Is that right? If so how can libraries respond? Any thoughts/viewpoints would be much appreciated. Tom
