    although the fact that the publishers generally don't pay authors means that they are not paying for the content, doesn't it? The peer review process is also mainly done for free in that peer reviewers are not paid by the publisher. However, there is definitely administrative time in keeping track of all that.

    But, certainly the relatively few copies they will sell compared with, say, Twilight ;) or even a mid level book means relatively high cost per item.
