The request was successful.

Dear University of Southampton,

I would like the university to publish the data outlined below, in relation to the years 1980, 2000, and each year from 2012-2018 (or up to the most recent figures available):

1. The total amount spent by the university on all publishers of academic journals
2. The total sums paid to these specific publishers:
Reed-Elsevier
Springer
Wiley-Blackwell
Taylor & Francis
Sage

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 this format.

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,

S.Goodman

Support, University of Southampton
