SAGE publisher also send me this message:

 "Your views on open access publishing are needed!"

I share your misgivings about the project, but I also completed the survey
and used the free-text spaces extensively to get my point of view across.
May be if enough people can provide input in this manner, it might get the
message across - or am I just being naive?

The message originated from SAGE (as mentioned), as I'm on their mailing
list for 'freebies'! I have little access to scientific literature, so I
have to use freebies as they come along!! Are they the same as 'Springer',
or was SAGE's name left out not to make the conflict of interest too

(UK) and others in the European Commission-funded project SOAP - Study of
Open Access Publishing. More information about the SOAP project can be
found at

........... to complete this survey.

Thank you in advance for your help.
