If you’re an academic who publishes, reviews, or subscribes to journals, you’ll know that the publishing outfit Elsevier has a long and sordid history of overcharging scientists and libraries for their products, as well as supporting measures to restrict the dissemination of scientific information. At last there’s a boycott in effect, with many scientists signing a petition vowing to abstain from publishing, refereeing, or doing any other editorial work for Elsevier journals. I’ve signed it, and if you’re as ticked off as many of us are, you will want to join in.
