         Subject: Fwd: Call for IPSI Transactions Special Issues in 2005/6;

Dear colleagues:

Anyone who can shed light on the practice of charging authors for
publishing submissions please comment on the following. This would seem
different from requiring a subvention for a book, since (a) the author is
expected to pay, and (b) a journal article would, I'd think, be unlikely to
be supported by a funding body. In the following case, the number of
reviewers also seems rather high.
