You spend a couple years carrying out some research, another year writing
it up, and then you submit your research manuscript to an open-access
publisher. It’s accepted, you pay the article processing charges, and then
it is published online. A year later, the publisher goes out of business
and all its published articles disappear forever.

This is the actual scenario for many authors who published with the former
open-access publisher called VictorQuest Publications.
