Hi Richard,

 

I'm glad to see you cover the evolution of Elsevier's green policy.

 

BTW, at one point you link to a Wayback-Machine copy of my June 2004
newsletter. But that issue is still available at its original URL.

http://www.earlham.edu/~peters/fos/newsletter/06-02-04.htm

 

You linked to that issue in order to link to my article, "Elsevier permits
postprint archiving." If you prefer, here's the copy of that article in 
the
Harvard repository.

     Best,

     Peter

A new Q&A in a series exploring the current state of Open Access has been
published. This one is with Philippe Terheggen Director Journal Development
and Support at Elsevier. Terheggen, who is responsible for all 2,500 of
Elsevier's journals, is the second representative of a traditional
commercial publisher to take part in this series.

 

As the largest legacy journal publisher, Elsevier tends to attract more
criticism from the OA movement than other publishers. One could argue,
however, that it has conspired in this by doing more than other publishers
to try to derail OA - not least by aggressively supporting the infamous
Research Works Act (RWA) in 2011. Today, however, Elsevier accepts that OA
has become mainstream, that it needs to embrace it, and that it may not turn
out to be the monster that the publisher assumed it to be. As Philippe
Terheggen says in the Q&A, "In my opinion, we're past the notion of OA 
as a
threat to publishers as there are many examples of OA publishers who run a
perfectly healthy business."

 

The  Q&A can be read here:
