Cost models for running an online open journal | Journal of Open Source Software Blog

In this post, we examine the true costs of running a journal such as JOSS*, and make the case that even when considering all services we don’t currently pay for, the true cost per paper would not exceed $100. Current APCs at many “gold” open-access journals exceed that by one or more orders of magnitude, (see, for example, PNAS, Nature, IEEE, etc.)
