Letter to Department of Justice Regarding Wiley and Sons Acquisition of Blackwell Publishing

John Wiley and Sons announced an agreement to acquire Blackwell Publishing. As members of the Information Access Alliance, we are deeply concerned that this transaction will exacerbate market dysfunctions and result in further reduction in access to critical research information that fuels the entire higher education and research enterprise. We urge the Department of Justice to challenge this proposed sale.
