Are these known incidences just the tip of the iceberg? How do we know this
isn’t happening at a greater scale, unobserved? There are more than 50

explains the obscene profits of the legacy publishers?

It’s yet another nail in the coffin for hybrid OA – *we simply can’t trust
these publishers to keep this content open and paywall-free.*
