Univ. of California Faculty May Boycott Nature Publisher

Marian the Librarian writes “Nature Publishing Group (NPG), which publishes the prestigious journal Nature along with 67 affiliated journals, has proposed a 400% increase in the price of its license to the University of California. UC is poised to just say no to exorbitant price gouging. If UC walks, the faculty are willing to stage a boycott; they could, potentially, decline to submit papers to NPG journals , decline to review for them and resign from their editorial boards.”
