Academics have called for a boycott of publisher Elsevier, saying it is involved in "the exploitation of a monopoly position" in overcharging for its online journals. Signatories include academics from leading universities across the world including Oxford, Cambridge, Yale, Harvard, McGill, University College London and University College Dublin.  But the publisher has said they have got their facts wrong and asked them to reconsider.
