Elsevier editorial boards: Government Information Quarterly

Reiterating briefly: Don’t be mean to people just because they’re caught in Elsevier’s web. We want them to do one of three things, on principle:

  • Express opposition to SOPA and RWA in an editorial inside the journal, calling upon Elsevier to change its stance and lobbying practices
  • Make a public statement opposing Elsevier’s stance on SOPA and RWA, calling attention to it within Elsevier as well
  • Leave the editorial board, individually or in a collective declaration of independence, and explain both publicly and privately why

  • J. Carlo Bertot, University of Maryland
