Project proposal: Non-disclosure agreements in journal contracts

Contracts that academic libraries sign with publishers sometimes have non-disclosure agreements forbidding the library from publicly stating the price or terms of the contract. Along with my PhD supervisor Martin Eve, I recently submitted a short project proposal to a funding body to investigate the international usage of non-disclosure agreements in journal contracts. The funding was turned down this time, but I thought it worthwhile posting an outline of the project here in case anyone else is interested.
