Alexander, et al.:

Slightly off-topic.

This is true for those journals that charged for subscriptions to their dead
tree versions. Others are strictly on-line and have no author charges. In
2016 I published a paper in the Journal of Regulatory Science. While its
focus is on medical/pharmaceutical/agricultural chemical regulation it did
accept my article on environmental regulatory science. These may not be
"prestigious" journals but if the quality of the published article is
sufficiently high it will be noticed.
