Dear University College Falmouth,

Please publish the total amount paid to Elsevier for academic
journals in each of the last five years (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013,
and 2014).

I understand that your expenditure records may be held in academic
financial years rather than calendar years. If so please provide
figures for 2009/10, 2010/11, 2011/12, 2012/13, and 2013/14.

The figures should include payments made directly to Elsevier as
well as any payments made to subscription agents or intermediaries
for the purchase of, and/or access to, Elsevier academic journals.
They should also include payment for journal packages such as Jisc
Collections’ NESLi agreement, as well as for individual journals.
Please include VAT where possible.

Please do not include payments for other products from the same
company, such as Scopus, which are not academic journals.

Yours faithfully,

Stuart Lawson
