Summary:

"I and three coauthors had an article accepted in a reputable open-access journal. The paper covers work I did as a grad student, and the coauthors were my advisor and committee members. We have not found funding for this and will be paying the $1250 publication fee out-of-pocket. Unless the accepted practice is "first author pays all," what is a reasonable split and how do I politely ask my advisor and possibly other coauthors to cough up?

Snowflakes: I graduated in late 2016, the other three coauthors are all tenured profs at the university I attended. I will want to use them as references in future job searches. I am first author, advisor is last author. We are scientists...."
