@jerlich Good start but then you look at the fees page... $5,975 to publish open access!? I think I'll keep sending things to eLife
I don't know why anyone would ever pay journals for open access.
Remember that all NIH-funded research is open access after one year. Is anyone's science that time-critical that it has to be easily-accessible* for that one year.
* You can always send anyone the PDF if they email you. While not everyone knows this, this is generally known within most scientific fields. All open-access is really doing is making it easier to find. It is not making it actually available or not.
Also (if you can't wait a year), there is nothing preventing you from putting the paper on bioRxiv before turning in the final submission to whatever journal this is.
