|Elsevier journal agreement cancelled
Elsevier journal agreement cancelledhttp://www.ub.gu.se/aktuellt/detaljvy.xml?id=2962
JUN 25, 2018
The University Library's journal agreement with Elsevier expires on 30 June 2018. The Bibsam Consortium at the Royal Library [of Sweden] has decided not to renew the agreement, as Elsevier cannot meet the requirements for open access. The negotiations with Elsevier will continue.
Since 1996, the Bibsam Consortium negotiates license agreements for electronic journals and databases on behalf of Swedish universities, colleges and research institutes. After 20 years it has been decided that the agreement with Elsevier regarding e-journals will not be renewed. This decision is about meeting the government's target for immediate open access by 2026 and about switching from a subscription-based to an open access publishing system.
The requirements include:
- Immediate open access to all articles published in Elsevier journals by researchers affiliated with participating organisations
- Reading access for participating organisations to all articles in Elsevier’s 1,900 journals
- A sustainable price model that enables a transition to open access
Swedish researchers publish about 4000 articles annually in Elsevier's journals. In 2017, about SEK 13 million was paid in publishing costs, in addition to the SEK 120 million that the participating organizations paid in license costs to read Elsevier's journals.

Chinese [company] Geely bought on Friday [Feb 16, 2018] shares in the German [car/truck manufacturer company] Daimler. Daimler is a competitor to the truck manufacturer company AB Volvo, but also to the car manufacturer Volvo Cars.
Why does Geely buy shares in Daimler when they are already a major shareholder in the both Volvo companies?
- Geely is share-wise the largest shareholder in AB Volvo and major shareholder in Volvo Cars. So many wonder exactly the same thing. It is incomprehensible from traditional business theories. If Geely has some gigantic plan to be able to coordinate the companies, the antitrust authorities both in EU and USA will set sticks in the wheels.
Daimler is no. 1 manufacturer of heavy trucks in the world, AB Volvo is no. 2.

How big is the threat from Russia?
- One should not underestimate the ambitions of large states to intervene the affairs of other states. But the absolutely most dangerous is if we isolate Russia, because they should also develop. The most dangerous for us is a poor Russia that is filled by internal contradictions and conflicts. I would like to see that both USA and EU go out for Russia in a more meaningful dialog than today. Otherwise there is risk that Russia is driven in a direction where it ends in a solid alliance with China. There is nothing that means improvement for our part.( more )

Point by point: this is what the proposal on expressed consent law looks like
It becomes forbidden to have sex with a person who has not expressly said "yes" or actively showed willingness to participate. It is no longer required that the offender has used violence or threat, or abused the victim's especially vulnerable situation, to be convicted.
The government proposes that two new crimes are introduced, negligent rape and negligent sexual attack with a prison term of up to 4 years. Negligence is the view on the circumstance that the other person did not participate voluntarily.
The minimal penalty for the aggravated rape and aggravated rape of a child is increased from 4 to 5 years in prison. The government however proposed not to introduce a classification of "especially hard crime", in spite that it was presented in the [preparatory] investigation.
The criminal protection of sexual offenses against children is strengthened by the negligence of the offender with regard to the child's age. The offender should have it more difficult to refer to the fact that the victim looked older.
Those who have been subjected to a sexual crime should have got support earlier in the process. When a preliminary investigation of sexual crime is launched, a claim of plaintiff assistant shall be made immediately.
The government allocates resources to inform authorities and courts about it. They should even change the curriculum to bring in the question there.
The term "rape" remains, and new prerequisites for negligence are introduced. "Our assessment is that more [offenders] will be brought to trial", says M. Johansson [Swedish justice minster]
Changes in the legislation are proposed to come into effect on the 1st of July 2018.
