A prominent French scholar writes:
In France, the present negotiations we face with Elsevier concerning subscriptions are also fierce. Yesterday all academic French institutions received the announcement that negotiations have broken down, and we will no longer be able to access their journals on December 31st.
If you could provide me details about similar negotiations with Elsevier you have heard about, I will forward them to colleagues in charge of the present negotiation. I am also looking for information concerning the fact that Elsevier pays some of us in an obscure way (there is no contract, other editors are not informed, etc.). This might explain why some of our colleagues are supportive of Elsevier.
If you contact me, I can arrange to have information passed on to this scholar - while maintaining your anonymity if you like. You can send me a private message on G+. Or, my email address can be found on my webpage. (There's a slight intelligence test involved.)
