"We talk a lot about open access, but one of the greatest impediments to achieving our OA vision is the fact that we, higher education and research institutions, continue to prop up the subscription system, investing our money in big deal packages the pricing for which is often based not on actual cost but on historical print expenditure and utterly lacking in transparency, increasing year after year, monopolising our budgets."
