But ‘risks’ of open access and a shift away from subscription model could halt growth, publisher’s financial results reveal (February 20, 2018)

The world’s largest academic publisher grew its profits to more than £900 million last year, although it warned that a move towards openly available research could hurt its business.

Elsevier, currently locked in a dispute<https://www.timeshighereducation.com/news/will-other-countries-follow-germany-battle-elsevier> with German research institutions that want it to move away from a paywalled subscription model towards pay-to-publish open access, had its financial results<https://www.relx.com/~/media/Files/R/RELX-Group/documents/press-releases/2018/relx-group-results-2017-pressrelease.pdf> released last week as part of those of its parent company, RELX.
