How commercial scholarly publishers put the future of scientific knowledge at risk

On Tuesday 13 November, during Education International’s 11th International Further & Higher Education & Research Conference in Taipei, Taiwan, we will be releasing our latest report produced as part of the Global Response to the growing commercialisation and privatisation of education. Democratising Knowledge: a report on the scholarly publisher, Elsevier, aims to provide the foundations for a critical study into Elsevier’s business model and practices. The study also aims at contributing to developing policy objectives relating to open public access to research and educational materials, academic freedom, researcher autonomy, and the scholarly communication system. This research will form a key part of Education International’s Global Response campaign on the commercialisation and marketisation in and of education aimed specifically at the further and higher education and research sector.
