President's page: International support for Chilean geophysicists

No. But I'm known to be prejudiced in this area. Decide for yourself.

One dollar buys your library about 46,000 words of JGR. This amount of material costs over $4.00 in Earth and Planetary Science Letters and Geochima et Cosmochimica Acta, two of the more reasonably priced, commercially published journals and about $9.50 in Geophysical Surveys. But, you say, ‘ Wait a minute! What about the page charge of $80? That's 6.5c per word.’ OK; if there were no page charge, your library would still pay less than $2.40 for those 46,000 words.
