Academic journal costs

Stuart Lawson made this Freedom of Information request to Newman University, Birmingham

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Newman University, Birmingham,

For the years 2015 and 2016, please publish the total amount paid to each of the following publishers for academic journals:

Taylor & Francis
De Gruyter
Royal Society of Chemistry
Institute of Physics Publishing

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 2014/15, and 2015/16.

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 agreements, as well as for individual journals. Please include VAT where possible.

Yours faithfully,

Stuart Lawson
