"The Finnish Open Science and Research Initiative (ATT) collected data on the costs paid to scientific publishers in 2016. The Finnish higher education institutes and research institutes paid last year 35 million euros for electronic material from scientific publishers. The biggest publisher, Elsevier, received over 10 million euros and the five biggest publishers about 80 % of total publisher costs. This data release is a continuation of last year's release, when ATT announced the academic publisher costs for 2010-2015. The data set for 2016 is more comprehensive than the previous: more research institutes are involved than before. For universities and universities of applied sciences the figures are comparable."
