E-journal costs

I am invloved (a member of the editorial board) of a new peer-reviewed,
electronic only, startup journal in Chemistry - the Internet Journal of
Chemistry (IJC) - www.ijc.com.

As we approach the end of our first year of operation I can say without
question that the cost for year one, including buying a dedicated
computer, etc, is less tha $50,000.  We have 2500 registered users (the
journal will be free for years 1 and 2) so far, and if we convert only a
small percentage of these to paying customers starting in Janaury 2000, I
am sure the journal will profitable at a very reasonable cost (i.e., less
than $300).
