      Dear Imre: It is true researchers do transfer copyright of
      their works to publishers for wider distribution but they do
      this knowing full well the works will be peer-reviewed and
      included in Journals which are respected in the STM
      community. This is done becaue the researchers know it will
      benefit them.


      If one were to go out and establish their own journals using
      today's technology, they could do that too. But, there are
      "journals" and there are "JOURNALS." Publishers provide a
      necessary service to their readers and to the researchers who
      wish to be known among their own research community...Eamon
