On the share of mathematics published by Elsevier and Springer
For-profit editors such as Elsevier and Springer have been subject to sustained criticism from academics and university libraries, including calls to boycott, and discontinued subscriptions. Mathematicians have played a particularly active role in this critique, and have endeavored to imagine new publication practices and create new journals. This motivates the monitoring of the share of articles published by different editors. I used data from MathSciNet over the period 2000-2017, and focused on the 100 journals with highest citations per article. Within this category, the share of articles published by Elsevier and Springer has steadily increased over this period, from about a third to almost half of the total.

RomBoistel: La proportion d'articles en maths publiée chez Elsevier ou Springer s'est accrue entre 2000 et 2017, malgré les critiques de la communauté. Malheureusement les data ne sont pas assez précises pour rendre visible l'effet de la pétition @costofknowledge : https://t.co/u4E3JFofWJ

HigherGeometer: Jean-Christophe Mourrat, "On the share of mathematics published by Elsevier and Springer" https://t.co/4lMgjdk727 tl;dr It's going up, because while they aren't publishing a greater proportion of journals, but their journals are publishing (many) more papers than others are. https://t.co/WUgdargHoB

oa_math: https://t.co/E8Kcf0VZto The share of mathematics papers published by Springer and Elsevier has increased markedly since year 2000 (although more work must be done to check the last few years). This is not really good news.
