Just Say No

The University of California system has informed the Nature Publishing Group that if they won’t negotiate the proposed 400% increase for the cost of California’s license for its journals next year, the system will take steps against the publisher, which may include suspending subscriptions to all of the Nature Group journals the system buys access to. The system would also organize a boycott of Nature’s journals to include a voluntary request to all UC researchers to neither contribute papers to nor review manuscripts for the Nature Group journals.
