  1. Want to mitigate academic spam emails? Stop submitting to pay to publish journals. Most of the spam I get is from predatory publishers – if authors no longer pay to publish, the incentive to send half the spam is gone.

    If you care about open access, self-archive your paper with your institutional repository or submit to a free OA journal.
