Open Access Research
  • Strikes me as a very important move by the US towards “open access” academic research.
  • By 2026 all US federal agency funded research must be free to read immediately on publication.
  • This has been talked about for a very long time.
  • In a recent transcript from Stream by Alpha Sense (institutional investors can sign up with a work email for two free weeks here), a former Elsevier Director, argued the effect on $RELX business will be a “small negative” as they will find ways to charge for ancillary parts of research (reviews, data etc). The hit to smaller publishers will be worse.
