The Cost of Knowledge


Academics have protested against Elsevier's business practices for years with little effect. These are some of their objections:

They charge exorbitantly high prices for subscriptions to individual journals.
In the light of these high prices, the only realistic option for many libraries is to agree to buy very large "bundles", which will include many journals that those libraries do not actually want. Elsevier thus makes huge profits by exploiting the fact that some of their journals are essential.
They support measures such as SOPA, PIPA and the Research Works Act, that aim to restrict the free exchange of information.

Charles Don's curator insight, March 21, 2013 2:37 PM

This article offers some great insights in to the value of strategic partnerships in IMC. It makes clear the value of engaging with marcomms professionals for people involved in any sector. I like the focus away from the commercial sector. 

Matthew Macdonald's comment, March 21, 2013 11:13 PM
This article does talk about the importance of communications, but not in detail about how communication partnerships are built or how they use strategies to increase brand equity.
Kajal Bhaga's comment, April 8, 2013 2:51 AM
I found this article to be quite interesting and I can say that I enjoyed reading it. I agree with you Charles, this article sure proposes particularly nice visions in integrated marketing communications in terms of the importance of strategic partnerships. I also agree with your statement Matthew.
