From : NEMJ is a leader in retractions and a massively generous employer if you’re an editor! 🤑

True for, e.g. Nature itself: about US$50k in current value. Even worse would be at about 300k/article: On the other hand, the average subs. article costs about US$4k-5k, so NatComm is clearly worse than an av. subs. article.
ICYMI: in 2016, 328 citable items at cost the tax payer approx. US$314,000 a piece, which paid for, among other things, US$ ~4M for the top ten staff salaries and 1,304 news and opinion articles, such as, e.g., #researchparasites #oa
A research article at costs the tax payer ~US$300,000 , one at a Journal only about 10% that, 30k - but their publication costs are at most ~US$1,000 per article #oa #openaccess #OpenScience
The : and you thought was expensive via NEJM has come out strongly against Open Access. Apparently, this journal does not seem to value access to medical information very highly. Why?
As I am not sure how the twitter share works, here is the whole URL
We've been giving publishers like these not only peanuts like 10k an article, but some up to 300k per article - for decades: Maybe our complaints are a little late, especially when we are - with APC-OA - about to make the same mistake again?

I think you'll like what I made of these numbers :-) If you only count citable items, looks much worse than :-)
Recalculated. APCs would be more like 300k: At least this is what were are paying them now.
