In 2017, the journal's four editors-in-chief and editorial board resigned to protest the publisher's high prices and limited accessibility.[1][2] They criticized Springer for "double-dipping", that is, charging large subscription fees to libraries in addition to high fees for authors who wished to make their publications open access.[3] The board subsequently started their own open access journal, Algebraic Combinatorics.[4][5]
