APS and AIP Win Court Decision

Federal District Court Judge Leonard Sand has ruled completely in favor of the APS and AIP in a suit brought by Gordon and Breach. The judge found no basis for G&B's complaints about publication and dissemination of the 1988 Barschall study that analyzed cost effectiveness of physics journals. In that study, APS and AIP journals came out high and G&B's among the lowest. More information can be found in the October 1997 issue of Physics Today and in McIlrath's Q&A on page 2.
