Dear University of Manchester,

Please publish the total amount paid to the publishers:

Taylor & Francis
Sage
Cambridge University Press

For academic journals for 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 I am happy for
the response to be provided in the same format, with figures for
2009/10, 2010/11, 2011/12, 2012/13, and 2013/14.

The figures should include payments made directly to the publishers
as well as any payments made to subscription agents or
intermediaries for the purchase of, and/or access to, the
publishers' 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.

Yours faithfully,

Stuart Lawson

Lisa Crawley, University of Manchester
