Will other papers follow FT.com?

This article from the New York Times made me start wondering how many other papers will start charging for articles and restricting access via our other channels.
The Paper That Doesn’t Want to Be Free
By ERIC PFANNER
Published: August 16, 2009
New York Times

Not long ago, when other media executives were convinced that the only way to succeed on the Web was to give away their content, The Financial Times played the eccentric.
...
In another effort to generate additional digital revenue, the newspaper restricted access last year to its content through databases like Factiva and LexisNexis, requiring users to buy special licenses to read archived articles. More than 600 corporate customers, with a total of about 50,000 users, have done so.

Taylor & Francis Acquires Haworth Press

"Taylor & Francis Group recently acquired the publishing portfolio of Haworth Press. I am writing to give you advance notification of our schedule for migrating the ejournals from www.haworthpress.com to www.informaworld.com to allow for a smooth platform transition for you and your users.

From November 2008 we will begin to load journal titles formerly published by Haworth Press to www.informaworld.com. From this point, no new content with a 2009 volume year will be added to www.haworthpress.com, nor will any new accounts be created on the site. We expect this load to be complete by mid-December, and for all Haworth content to be available on informaworld from this point.

The Haworth Press site will run in tandem with informaworld until 30th March 2009, after which date the site will be closed."

Who owns which company

It's hard sometimes to keep up with which groups bought which publishers. AALL's CRIV (Committee on Relations with Information Vendors) has a way to look up this information.

From their page:


A Legal Publishers List: Corporate Affiliations of Legal Publishers, 2d ed.
The publishers in the Legal Publishers List are divided into five groups, which are on five separate web pages:

  • Thomson
  • Reed Elsevier
  • Wolters Kluwer
  • Other Publisher with Subsidiaries
  • Independent Publishers

The lists may be found at http://www.aallnet.org/committee/criv/resources/tools/list/.
