Academic publisher profits 2011-14
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
This is a dataset of the profits of academic journal publishers. It contains financial information - revenues, profits, and profit margins - for companies that make this publicly available.
It covers the years 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014. Data is currently incomplete because some publishers do not make this information available, and some annual reports from 2011 are already difficult to find online.
An online verison of this dataset, which may be updated more often, is available at: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Avt-G30CZ3ZndEtXSVNqTWhCazhSSEhJS3F1bktaaFE&usp=sharing#gid=4 [Accessed 2 May 2014].
