Journal of Library Administration: Editor steps down

The Editor and his entire editorial board have resigned citing 'restrictive' authors' agreement.

The editor and editorial board of the Journal of Library Administration (Taylor and Francis) have resigned in protest against the publisher's authors' agreement. The editor stated that potential contributors were unhappy with the agreement which they found confusing and 'restrictive'. 

The publishers defended their position, stating that the issues around licensing and copyright are always evolving.  Taylor and Francis has been working on a new version of author documentation for some time, and it is hoped the new versions will clarify which rights the authors will retain.
