Yale University drops Biomed Central membership – BMC responds

Three days ago I blogged about Yale University dropping their Biomed Central (BMC) membership. Matthew Cockerill, the BMC publisher yesterday wrote a response. Briefly, he argues that the author-pays model is a viable business model for Open Access publishing and that the rising costs cited by Yale are simply a reflection of the increasing number of articles submitted to BMC.
