The Scholastica team read this amazing post by Timothy Gowers where he uncovers how much universities are actually paying for Elsevier journals. We worried that casual readers might miss some of the great punchlines within the 10,000+ word post, so we thought we could help spread the great work Timothy Gowers is doing by creating an infographic. The graphic we created is below - feel free to share!
