I’ve just sent the fast-track protest letter with our original list of 18 authors to the several journals that charge a fee to fast-track.
I believe their policy imperils the fairness of the scientific publication system.
I’m sure we’ll need more support to convince some of these journals to discontinue their unsavory policy, so please add your name to the signatories here
I’ll soon be linking to the responses we receive from the journals.
UPDATE 3 May: I’m posting the responses at this google group and will blog about them later.
