I am interested in knowing if ESA is the only publisher that offers authors
the _option_ of paying for immediate open access [to PDF files of articles
in its paper-published journals].

 From 1994 through 2000, Florida Entomologist gave open access to all its
authors . Since that time it has charged _all_ authors a fee for the
service (no option). Both of these means of providing open access differ
significantly from what ESA is doing.
