The University of California (UC) has been without an Elsevier contract since December 31, 2018, and terminated negotiations on February 28, 2019. In eight months of negotiations, UC pursued universal open access to UC research while containing the costs of the contract. Negotiations made substantial progress towards UC's open access goals, but broke down due to remaining disagreements over both open access and cost. In this session, members of the negotiation team will debrief the CNI community on UC's negotiation and communication strategy, the data analyses that informed our stance, and the off-setting model we proposed to Elsevier. In conversation, we'd like to learn what information or tools might empower your library to take an equally principled stance.
