Why I do not like the pay-to-publish model?

  1. I do not have money. Although I work for a univeristy, I do a lot of smaller, unfunded reseraches out of my own interest. So far I have been able to get them published without paying a dime.

  2. Getting my papers published free gives me a sense of pride: my work is valuable enough that a journal is willing to publish it at their own expense. Paying to publish would make feel more like an advertisment.

  3.  I believe that the business model of jouranls charging the libraries or other subscibers provides a stronger motivation for a journal to strive for higher quality. I do not have theory or data to back up this statement. But I do know that some pay-to-publish journals totally publish junk but I know no journals that do not charge the author survive this way.
