Needless to say stopping Hooters meetings wasn't my idea. I wanted to fit in so badly when I heard about it I suggested we keep going. #doh

Other than that, tho, it was a great group and being a girl never got in the way. I just always felt they thought I'd ruined their fun.

"high cost of hybrid #OA publishing, which we have found to be nearly 2x that of born-digital fully OA journals" http://blog.wellcome.ac.uk/2014...
I find it increasingly difficult to think of "hybrid" OA as not being the *true* predatory OA publishing. Esp. since I still haven't seen any demonstrations that paying up front actually lowers subscription/license costs down the line. - Walt Crawford
I believe there's a publisher or two who'll reduce library subscriptions proportionately to OA articles they publish. Can't remember who they are though. - Deborah Fitchett
OUP claims that it will do that for its journals, I believe. - DJF
or was it RSC? One of the British ones, I know that. - DJF
Oh, several publishers--almost every hybrid OA publisher--have said that. It's demonstrating that they actually do it that's the trick. (If a hybrid OA publisher doesn't at least claim it, it's just plain double-dipping. "Fraud" is such an actionable word...) - Walt Crawford
RT @thePeerJ: Many great reasons for why publishing in PeerJ (and some other journals too...) is a Good Idea http://blog.impactstory.org/the-3-d...
