RE: Open Access and "Membership Costs"

Yes, BMC is a for-profit publisher. That is, BioMed Central is neither
subsidised nor tax-exempt. BioMed Central was also the first to embrace
the new open access publishing model that when it is widespread and the
prevailing model will have transformed the nature of science

Might it be an idea to postpone the discussion about for-profit and
not-for-profit until a significant number of not-for-profits have switched
to open access?
