Dear University of Wolverhampton,

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

Your request will now be considered in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000. You will receive a response within the statutory timescale of 20 working days as defined by the Act, subject to the information not being exempt or containing a reference to a third party. In some circumstances we may be unable to achieve this deadline. If this is likely you will be informed and given a revised timescale at the earliest opportunity.

In some cases there may be a fee payable for the retrieval, collation and provision of the information you request. If this is the case you will be informed and the 20 working day timescale will be suspended until we receive payment from you. If you choose not to make payment then your request will remain unanswered.

Some requests may also require either full or partial transference to another public authority in order to answer your query in the fullest possible way. Again, you will be informed if this is the case.
