It's pretty disconcerting how many energy policy journals are owned by Elsevier. If anyone can recommend any alternatives, I'd be so grateful. Despite my librarian skills, I'm not finding a lot and I'm trying to avoid environmental law journals for the time being.

from the bird site - even if I could convince Elsevier to waive an OA APC, I'm not sure I'd trust them after reading this

@archivist Wow. Reading that thread and --- yikes. Convincing the editorial board of an existing journal to quit and start a new one would be only slightly more work.

@archivist not sure if it fits the bill as far as subject matter, but have a look into Buildings and Cities journal. It came into being after Taylor and Francis forced the editor of Building Research & Information out.
