From an IOI Blog Post:
On May 17, 2021, Clarivate Analytics announced it was acquiring software, data, and analytics company ProQuest for $5.3 billion USD. We believe additional regulation, oversight, and action are needed, and call on the community to join us.
We, IOI, ask the community to join us as we coordinate an effort to:
- Audit Clarivate and ProQuests’ data resale and surveillance practices and policies.
- Organize a community consultation on data governance for institutional customers of Clarivate and ProQuest services.
