Earlier this year, the University of California  cancelled its contract with Elsevier  due to unacceptable license terms and subscription costs. Elsevier is the world’s largest publishers of scholarly journals. The terms by which it sells content to universities have become unsustainable for most institutions, including UNC-Chapel Hill, which is currently in renewal negotiations with Elsevier. In April, 2019, Faculty Council approved Resolution 2019-8, “On Containing the Costs of Published Research.” 

We invite you to an open discussion so that we can share information about this situation and keep you informed of progress in these discussions. There will be two opportunities (August 21st and August 28th), both requiring sign-up due to limited seating. 

Wednesday, August 21, 7:30 a.m. - 8:30 a.m. (RSVP)
