RELX fell as news emerged of a handful more universities cancelling subscriptions to Elsevier’s scientific journals. To date, the cancellations have had the effect of slowing Elsevier’s growth, rather than putting the division into reverse. We met with senior RELX management last month and, as always, were impressed by the considered and disciplined way they run the company. We were also impressed by the passionate defence they make of Elsevier’s position in global science and its commitment to remain a friend to and facilitator of scientific progress – just as it has over the last 140 years.
