Rant mode on.
We have one publisher of ebooks with a 13% increase. A journal publisher with a 7% increase. Another journal publisher with individual titles with as much as a 20% increase (promptly cancelled!).
THERE IS NO MORE MONEY.
THERE IS NO ... MORE ... MONEY...
NO MORE MONEY.
Sequester? Government science cut backs? Military O & M money shorted? RDT&E money shorted?
No. More. You're gonna get cancelled and we'll have to deal with the pitchforks and torches. Hell, I have a travel ban on now even if the kids weren't preventing me from going to SLA and whatnot.
It's not just the small undergrad colleges. It's across the board.
End of Rant.
