I am given to understand that a letter of release from the journal will suffice to publish the ‘traditional’ way.
That is a BIG relief monetarily, although I am still anguished by the potential deviation from the open access philosophy.
I would really like to do my part to help keep knowledge accessible to all. Maybe the most pragmatic solution would be to ‘ensure’ the book retails at a very affordable price?
I would still like to hear your views on the matter. You can comment publicly below or on facebook. Alternatively, you could mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
