Institutional Support Key Variable in Success of Open Access Publishing

Thanks to Peter Suber for alerting us to a new study by McCabe and Snyder, Academic Journal Prices in a Digital Age: A Two Sided Market Model. One of the conclusions of the study is that author's fees for open access journals--which can be a stumbling block to support of open access among academics--can be reduced to nothing, given strong institutional support of open access publishing.
