Global STM publishing industry grew 4.4% to $14.7 billion in 2007 (Source: Simba). There are hundreds and thousands of publishers who compete for a share of this market pie. Thanks to the emergence of technology enabled business models, the publishing industry has witnessed intense competition, in the last 10 years. Technological innovation and the advancement of science continue to change the market. As more articles become available electronically, usage statistics have enabled library customers, who have always had discretion about how to spend their budgets. Technological innovations have also lowered the cost of entry for new competitors because electronic-only publishers do not incur costs associated with the production, warehousing and distribution of print copies.
