    If they review papers for “free” is that not worth something?

    I definitely don’t think it should be for profit but it seems like there is value and costs to what they do. That money has to come from somewhere.

    EDIT: I am unfamiliar with the process so I took OP’s words at face value. Several others indicate this is inaccurate. So, seems like all they do it host/publish the papers. Which does cost money, but that just seems like something that should be funded by other means rather than users paying. Kinda weird to hide science behind an arbitrary paywall.
