 <Apologies for cross posting>

 The AOASG has published a new blog; “An effective market for APCs?”
http://aoasg.org.au/2014/04/11/an-effective-market-for-apcs/ which analyses
and discusses some of the findings and recommendations arising from the
report: *Developing an effective market for article processing charges. *The
implications of some of the proposed scenarios are explored and some of the
highlights from the report are listed including issues with the management
of article processing charges, the mega journal revolution and the uptake
of open access. The blog also discusses the information recently released
by Wellcome Trust on their expenditure on article processing funds  - the
amounts and the recipients. This new report and the Wellcome Trust numbers
together highlight some of the many substantial issues related to the
payment of article processing charges.
