Journal Pricing and Journal Refereeing
Ted Bergstrom announced that he will no longer referee for journals
that have subscription fees greater than $1,000, and has a preference
to referee for journals with fees below $300. As he puts it, "I just
don't see why I should supply free refereeing services to those
publishers that use monopoly pricing to gouge our university budgets.
... I do feel a professional obligation to review papers, but I can
perform this obligation just as well by doing my refereeing for
journals that are not exploiting university libraries." He provides
considerable data and information on this subject.
