Description

About the film: Paywall: The Business of Scholarship is a documentary which:

  • questions the rationale behind the $25.2 billion a year that flows into for-profit academic publishers

  • examines the 35-40% profit margin associated with the top academic publisher Elsevier, and

  • looks at how that profit margin is often greater than some of the most profitable tech companies like Apple, Facebook and Google.

Produced and directed by Jason Schmitt, Clarkson University, NY
