    that goes into this research, and none of it is by the publishing companies.

    The reviewers don't get paid at all either, not suggesting that they should b/c it would be a serious conflict of interest, but just saying that their profit comes purely from the labor of others.

    And they want to do whatever they can to maintain that profit margin even at the cost of limiting the ability of some to perform research that they themselves could later publish.
