“Journal’s Editorial Board Resigns in Protest of Publisher’s Policy Toward Authors”

From a March 26, 2013, article in The Chronicle of Higher Education:

The editor and the entire editorial board of the Journal of Library Administration have resigned in response to a conflict with the journal’s publisher over an author agreement that they say is “too restrictive and out of step with the expectations of authors.”

The licensing terms set by the publisher, Taylor & Francis Group, were scaring away potential authors, the editor who resigned, Damon Jaggars, told The Chronicle.
