RE: Versions

It would be MUCH better if they did not charge subscription fees, because,
unfortunately, not all the authors will understand the advantage ot gives,
and self-archive, at least for a while, and some users may not know where
to start--of course they can be taught, but this too takes a while until
it becomes widely understood.
But of course you are right and being able to self-archive the published
version would be an immense step forward and avoid many potential

"If and when they allow that, they should be welcomed as basically open
access journals, even if they charge subscription fees (though it would be
better if they were to make the final version freely available themselves,
too, of course, and not just rely on self-archiving)."
