Academics have protested against Elsevier’s business practices for

2 They sell journals in huge "bundles," so libraries must buy a
large set with many unwanted journals, or none at all. Elsevier thus makes
huge profits by exploiting their essential titles, at the expense of other
3 They support measures such as SOPA, PIPA and the Research Works Act, that
aim to restrict the free exchange of information.

Elsevier journal unless they radically change how they operate, then you
