I reread Tim Gowers protest against Elsevier as well as other writings from well-known professors that indicate they still protest.

I'm also aware of the boycott.

Has this protest actually changed Elsevier's business practices?

    Does the section "reaction from Elsevier" answer your question? If not, what is missing? – Allure Dec 18 '19 at 21:46
  • @allure I just really want a Winter Bash hat, to be honest. – user117530 Dec 18 '19 at 21:59
