Dear Catarina Dutilh Novaes--The Elsevier boycott does affect philosophy, and thanks for keeping it on the burner.

While Elsevier does not itself publish a lot of philosophy, its exorbitant rates for useless dreck eats up library budgets at the undoubted expense of humanities journals (including philosophy journals). Who is going to subscribe to "The Owl of Minerva" when you have to spend $2000 a years to get articles by a journal's own editor-in-chief?

Catarina Dutilh Novaes

Indeed, indeed!


Why is there no similar outcry about e.g. Springer? Is Elsevier just the worst of the worst? Should someone/we start something similar aimed at Springer, as well?
