    Elsevier, a traditional STEM publisher 20 years ago, now bills itself as a global information analytics business. Publishing and marketing/selling its journals and books is quite different from the database business into which it has expanded.
    With the same staff on both publishing and databases sales, maybe it is time to separate the two so that publishing can focus on negotiations like this one with a more appropriate understanding of authors and editors in academe.
