As a follow up to the recent post on the publication policy of Coral
Reefs, I would like to add some information on the Open Access policy of
the publisher, Springer. According to the so-called "Open Choice"
scheme, authors are requested to pay US$ 3,000 plus VAT (about 20% in
the EU) plus other standard costs (such as color if it is desired in the
printed version) to make their article freely accessible to everyone.
This is a very costly Open Access policy for the authors.
