tl;dr Tim Gowers has released Elsevier subscription costs for a range of UK universities obtained via FOI requests http://gowers.wordpress.com/2014...
This is long but definitely worth the read. Both for unprecedented data release and great explanation of the issues: http://gowers.wordpress.com/2014...
My U gets a mention. - Joe - Systems Analyst
I was advised a few weeks ago that something was brewing that would come out at the end of the month. I had no idea what is was (only a v. rough indication), but this is it !! - Graham Steel
My university had our number out there. Hooray for Public Records? - Hedgehog
Perhaps most interesting is correspondence between Tim and unis, what it reveals of Elsevier position and thinking of institutions
Made it to Newark. Shame the intention had been to be in DC...
New Jersey or Delaware? of the two, I'd pick Delaware. - Christina Pikas
New Jersey, cancelled LHR-IAD flight so they routed me via EWR and an overnight stay. Now doing a horribly early flight down to DC - Cameron Neylon
ugh, I'm sorry. Newark is kind of the armpit of the universe. - RepoRat
I once got stuck in Newark trying to go from md to Florida ( I know!) not pleasant - Christina Pikas from iPhone

Is there a sense in AHSS that publn in a venue "truly" validates work? My STM exp is that ppl believe need it for career but its not "real"
..1/2 lives suggest maths 'like' AHSS but LMS study & continued existence of maths jrnls after 20 yrs of ArXiv not mentioned? [3/3]
Much data worth digging into in British Academy #openaccess Report http://www.britac.ac.uk/templat... but odd logical leap at heart [1/2]

Trying not to construct a strawman but finding it hard to not read BA report as "the work only matters if published places no-one reads"...
Check Ian Bogost on "vampire publishing." - RepoRat
.@jenniferlin15 And I don't believe that "the market" can sort it. Customers != community. If financing cld be structured so it was phaps...

In this post I wanted to think about how we bridge the funding gap from promising pilot to community infrastructure and how debt financing might play a role. - Cameron Neylon

.@MLBrook @petermurrayrust @smithsam Then we've got a benchmark & an unseen data set, so we can see how we improve as new ones released
.@MLBrook @petermurrayrust @smithsam I am going to not look at Cambridge data till I've had a go with our automated tools on WT set [1/2]
