It would be great to have an overview of publication fees and processing time (average editors response time, peer review,..). Please add to the list.
Articles on publication costs
- "The cost of journal provision" 2004, Select Committee on Science and Technology 
"The average price of an academic journal rose by 58% between 1998 and 2003, compared to a UK retail price index increase of 11% over the same period."
"Reed Elsevier, for example, makes an operating profit of 34%, with profits after tax totalling nearer 17%. Wiley had an operating profit of 29% in the first half of 2003. These figures are substantially higher than the average operating profit of 22% across the academic, educational and professional publishing sector as a whole.."
- "PNAS Introduces Open Access Publishing Option" 2004! David Goodman, LIU 
"The average current cost of producing articles roughly seems to be $1500-$4000 for nonprofit publishers and $3000-$8000 for commercial (based on their own estimates in the UK hearings--I am deliberately using very wide ranges to accomodate all opinions)."
- "The costs and benefits of library site licenses to academic journals" 2004 
Table 1: Mean institutional price per page for journals in Neuroscience in 1997: $0.89 (for profit), $0.10 (nonprofit)
- "Who Pays for Open Access?" PLoS Biology, 2004 
"$1,700 in page charges that the average PNAS author already pays"
"In the EMBO Journal, for example, authors are allowed six pages of text free, but are then charged $200 per page beyond that. A review of recent issues shows that almost all authors exceed six pages, voluntarily paying on average over $800 to publish their articles."
