"Philip Campbell, the editor-in-chief of Nature and the other
Nature-branded journals, has said that Nature's internal costs of
publishing run at £20,000–30,000 (US$31,000–47,000) per paper, an
extremely high charge to load onto authors or funders rather than
spread over subscribers."
I wonder how other publishers succeed to write black figures with
Article Processing Charges less than one-tenth of Nature´s internal
pubishing costs per paper?
NPG needs help to lower publishing costs, obviously!
