(publishing) The economics of scientific publishing  
Published by the Wellcome Trust, this report "provides a comprehensive analysis of an industry that generates some �22 billion annually."

"The report has been published to support constructive dialogue between key players in the scientific publishing field - publishers, researchers, academic institutions and funders. The ultimate aim of this dialogue would be to develop a publishing system that meets the needs of all groups, and best promotes the public good of scientific work - that is, disseminates research outputs to all who have an interest in them."

Of great relevance to my Electronic Publishing course, I think. I'm off to download the full report (PDF 1300kb) now.
