Re: [xmca] FW: Invitation to Submit an Article


Can you explain further why you take this position? I ask as someone who is consistently frustrated by an inability to access the work published in MCA.

This kind of development - i.e., fraudulent scientific journals published electronically for no cost to the publisher or reader, which will clearly continue - means that the status of electronic publication is irrevocably degraded, and so rules out, really, the possibility of moving MCA to such a format. - The value of your research is warranted by the time and trouble other people have gone to to put it in print.
