Submission Fees – A tool in the transition to open access? :

The study consisted of an initial literature survey, followed by an exploration of the experience of those currently using submission fees conducted via interviews (primarily with journal editors and publishers). We then developed some possible models for submission fees within open access that were tested and refined through discussions with relevant stakeholders. Finally the potential viability of these models was explored through a series of semi-structured interviews with stakeholders
including publishers, libraries, research funders, research institutions and individual researchers. In
total some 40 interviews were conducted.”
