This long article from the website Vox, by Brian Resnick and Julia Belluz, provides a good explanation of the academic journal publishing industry, and outlines the dramatic changes that have been occurring over the last decade.
Academic libraries, including this one, have long struggled to afford to provide a good range of journals to their clients, and despite open access journals becoming more popular the problem is becoming worse. Large university libraries in the US and Europe are refusing to pay millions of dollars for journal packages when their own staff write a proportion of the content for free.
Additionally, researchers are increasingly being asked to pay high 'author fees' for editorial processing of their work.
Medline currently indexes 5,600 journals. The growth in academic journals, as more and more people seek to be published, has resulted in the advent of the 'pirate publisher'.
It seems that most agree that the solution is open access publishing, but there are various models, and various pathways to achieve this.
