+ - Scientists organize Elsevier boycott

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "The academic publisher Elsevier has attracted controversy for its high prices, the practice of bundling journals for sale to libraries and its support for legislation such as SOPA and the Research Works Act.

Fields medal winning mathematician Tim Gowers decided to go public with a blog post describing how he'll no longer have anything to do with Elsevier journals, and suggested that a public web site where mathematicians and scientists could register their support for an Elsevier boycott would further the cause. This website now exists, with 521 academics signing-up so far.

John Baez has a nice write-up of the problem and possible solutions."
