[Xmca-l] Re: paying journals to publish your work



Indeed. It is not random publication but specially the merit of your ideas and their social and scientific relevance. And I know lots of people that really care, specially here at XMCA.

> Paul, I think that once your name and email address gets captured by spiders crawling around the internet looking for the names of aspiring academic authors, you will find that you get swamped every day with offers to publish your articles and attend "World Congresses" on various hot topics as well. I have no real iea if anyone reads these journals in addition to the great excess of legitimate, peer-reviewed journals that already exist, but I suspect very few. As most universities nowadays require publication as a condition for having an academic job, I suspect the authors don't care. But with millions of aspiring authors and the option of vey cheap short run printing today, its an opportunity for someone to earn a living. But perhaps I am wrong.
