Announcements regarding open access & journal negotiations

I wanted to share this announcement from the UC systemwide Office of Scholarly Communication:

The announcement speaks to work that the University of California’s Systemwide Library and Scholarly Information Advisory Committee (SLASIAC) has been doing in partnership with our university libraries and the systemwide academic senate’s Committee on Library and Scholarly Communication (UCOLASC). These groups have been considering the twin challenges of journal affordability and what they recognize as the moral imperative of achieving a truly open scholarly communication system.

Please feel free to e-mail with any questions.
