Q: Open access or subscription, which option do hybrid journals prefer their authors to select?
In hybrid journals, the authors are asked to select to publish their papers under either OA or subscription. But what do journals prefer the most? I'm not planning to comply with journals' preference, but I'm just curious. As some argue that hybrid journals earn from subscription 2-3 times more than when publishing OA, and they obstruct the full transcription to full OA. While many authors in websites like ResearchGate, always imply that paying the fee for publication will increase your chance for accepting the paper. I ask you guys because your answers are always beneficial and I trust them.
