Here is a comment I left over on the Chronicle for Higher Education about the Schwartz case.
Reading through the comments it seems like there are a few misconceptions about publishing Journal articles that people might not know. I have never met anyone who got paid by an academic journal to publish. (If those people exist, I’d like to meet them, or at least talk to them.) Academics must sign away their copyright to the journal if they want it to be included. I will never get the rights to any of my papers back and technically, I cannot copy them for my classes (or friends classes) without violating copyright laws. I was not paid for the publications. I just got an extra line on my CV.
