The JISC commissioned Rightscom to carry out a series of interviews with librarians and publishers in order to understand the strengths and weaknesses of current business models for e-journals. Rightscom developed new business models and created dynamic working models for a selected number of them. Librarians and publishers agreed in such areas as the need for more funding to cover the increased output of research, the need for predictability and not restricting usage, but disagreed over the retention of print and the need for flexibility.
