Over at Antiqua they have come up with a cunning plan:
- Send unsolicited emails to every academic address they can find.
- Tell the academic that they can get their article (any article it would seem) published, quickly. [All academics want to have lots of papers published, it is just a slow and agonising process.]
- Antiqua offer you the chance to write the article, send it to them along with €350 and keep your fingers crossed that they will publish it. Online. Only online....
I am not impressed.
