Elsevier news roundup: German, Hungarian, and Swedish academics have been cut off from Elsevier journals after subscription negotiations broke down (nature.com/articles/d41586-019). Negotiations with the University of California are ongoing after a missed deadline (insidehighered.com/quicktakes/). Access to Germany was restored (nature.com/news/german-scienti) but without any long-term agreement. And the editorial board of _Informetrics_ resigned to protest Elsevier's open access policies (nature.com/articles/d41586-019).
