The Nature Publishing Group has issued a response to a letter to UC faculty describing inflated price increases for the Nature Publishing Group’s (NPG) 67 journals (including Nature) that UC licenses.    CDL Executive Director Laine Farley; Richard Schneider, Associate Professor, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery UCSF, and Chair, University Committee on Library and Scholarly Communication; and Brian Schottlaender, University Librarian, UC San Diego have issued a detailed rebuttal to NPG’s response.   The issue is generating much discussion among faculty and librarians in the press and blogosphere.
