Elsevier journal subscription costs

Stuart Lawson made this Freedom of Information request to Rose Bruford College

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 Rose Bruford College,

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

Dear Rose Bruford College,

Has there been any progress on this request?

Dear Rose Bruford College,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

Dear Ruth,

Thanks for this. My colleague Ben Meghreblian is also waiting for a response for requests for information regarding other publishers, which were sent in August and September last year.

Yours sincerely,

Stuart Lawson

Ruth Bourne, Rose Bruford College

Dear Stuart

I have checked with our Director of Finance and our College Librarian and can confirm that we have no subscriptions to Elsevier journals.

Please could you provide me with contact email for your colleague Mr Meghreblian and we will resolve his queries as well - our apologies for our oversight.

Best wishes

Ruth Bourne

Dear Ruth,

Thank you very much.

Ben also sent his requests through the website whatdothheyknow.com so I believe they will have arrived to you with a specific email address pertinent to the requests, rather than his own.

Yours sincerely,

Stuart Lawson

Ruth Bourne, Rose Bruford College

Thank you Stuart. I have tracked down the email and provided a response to Ben.

Best wishes

Dear Ruth,

Thank you very much for responding to 2 of the 3 FOI requests sent by myself and Ben Meghreblian. There is one which we haven't had an answer to, which is Ben's request regarding Taylor & Francis, Sage, and Cambridge University Press (https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/a...). Could we have an answer to that one please?

Yours sincerely,

Stuart Lawson
