English abstract

As Open Access brings an increased citation impact, a citation in an openly accessible article is a wonderful present. If the cited document is openly accessible as well, such a citation is a token of gratitude for the very gift of its presence. However, can we say the same about closed access papers? Why should open access authors advertise their journals for free and without reciprocity, for the sake of the profit of academic publishers, "the most ruthless capitalists in the Western world”? The article suggests a detailed although unorthodox solution.
