RE: Bergstrom & McAfee Open Letter to University Presidents andProvosts

"So far, universities have failed to use one of the most powerful tools
that they possess: charging for their valuable inputs. Journal editing
uses a great deal of professorial and staff time, as well as supplies,
office space and computers, all provided by universities. In any other
business, these inputs would be priced."

Which universities are these that do not charge for professional and staff
time, office space and computers? I have set up editoral offices for our
journals with major universities (Harvard, Penn, UCLA) and the prices have
been steep indeed--and getting more so all the time.
