On Open Access Journals

Probably, everybody working in academia is aware of the current Elsevier boycott. The discussion was started by Timothy Gowers on his blog. Recently, he published a summary of the results of the campaign.
However there are only few alternatives, for example “prepaid” journals as Springer’s Open Access series, e.g., Journal of Mathematics in Industry. The market might change soon: a true open access journal “Episciences.org project” was founded. It is based on arxiv and is reported to start publishing in the first half of 2013.
