In Open Access Publishing There Are No Free Lunches….. but it is really really cheap.

October 23, 2014

In my last post, I mentioned that not all Open Access publishing involves authors paying $2,000. In fact, many journals neither charge the authors or readers and if they do some will waive fees. This led to this very thoughtful comment from Anders- “Excellent that there are OA publishers that do not charge the authors […]
