In April, the EU set the fox to guard the henhouse by subcontracting Elsevier to monitor Open Science. The open access push in the EU and its advocates have had issues with Elsevier for a long while. It is not surprising that the community reaction to the news was negative. According to the complaint, a formal appeal is an option for two months after a contract is awarded, but the tender letter to Elsevier was disclosed two months and a day after the award. For this reason, advocates wrote and submitted the Complaint linked below with over one thousand signatures. They intend to send on a second set of signatures and are calling for others to consider adding their signature to the complaint. Read the linked complaint and decide for yourself.
