Unfortunately, we are talking about money. Publishing academic journals is a huge racket. Libraries would love it if that model was broken (we could spend a lot more on other services and materials) but part of the reason it costs so much is the price of mediating the peer-review process. It will take some of these ivy league publications to drop their costly practices and go OA before the rest of the academic publishing world will be brave enough to follow (like Harvard's IR, for example, now everyone is talking about doing the same thing). If we could only package it in terms of "going green." :)

Seems like everyone is finally jumping on that bandwagon.
