*As I’ve said before, including in my oral evidence to the UK House of
Commons BIS Select Committee Inquiry into Open Access in 2013,
non-disclosure agreements in academic publishing contracts are awful*. They
make a potentially monopolistic enterprise (because every article/book is
unique and because brand is such a strong driver of academic behaviour,
there is little competition) into one that exploits that monopolistic
position in terms of pricing.
