Evaluation of the Swedish Elsevier cancellation

100 days post-cancellation of Elsevier, the cancellation had stirred international attention and received mild reactions from researchers.

The Steering Committee of the Bibsam Consortium has set up an evaluation group in order to analyse the consequences of the Elsevier cancellation. The aim of the evaluation is to evaluate the cancellation’s effect on:

  • researchers and students;
  • higher education institutions (HEIs)/libraries, and;
  • the Consortium as a whole.

A report will be published next summer.
