It's even worse. We (the researchers) pay for the privelege of publishing our work in these journals. It's not cheap, either. And if you do anything flashy, like immunofluorescence, you have to spring extra for colored figures. And in exchange, you get your article published and about 100 reprints.


Yeah, I was thinking about that color surcharge....


I worked for a professor in college who was up in arms about this. I don't know whether he's still doing any work in the area, but it's a very interesting topic.
