Articles on the topic

  • 2stars.png "PNAS Introduces Open Access Publishing Option" 2004! David Goodman, LIU [1]

"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)."

  • 1star.png "Who Pays for Open Access?" PLoS Biology, 2004 [2]

"$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."
