@scholarlykitchn: So glad we can now enter the season of our annual Elsevier outrage based on substituting operating margins for net profit margins. twitter.com/timeshighered/…

@GinnyBarbour: "warned of threat to business from open access"! With 1 billion profit, there's probably enough money in the system to perhaps make the odd adjustment, here and there twitter.com/timeshighered/…

On Wednesday the Council formally approved the trilogue compromise text of the DSM directive with only 5 Member States voting against the compromise. In a joint statement the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Finland, Italy and Poland sharply criticised the compromise: We believe that the Directive in its current form is a step back for the Digital Single Market rather than a step forward. Most notably we regret that the Directive does not strike the right balance between the protection of right holders.  show all text
