Applying Conflict Theory to Strategy Selection In Scholarly Communication

  • Author(s): McCarthy, Patrick
  • et al.
Abstract

Consolidation of journal publishers and declining library budgets has resulted in conflicts between academic libraries over price and access. Several conflict theories, including conflict spiral, power dependence, and game theory can be used to explain how this relationship developed and possible approaches to improving a libraries position.
