(1) Self-archiving of refereed, published research is not the same as self-publishing. http://www.ecs.soton.ac.uk/~harnad/Tp/resolution.htm#1.4 (2) Unaffiliated faculty can publish as they always did, but they can self-archive their preprints and postprints either in central archives such as http://cogprints.ecs.soton.ac.uk/ or (as is often the case in the relations between universities and unaffiliated scholars), they can be allowed to self-archive in a university's eprint archive. (3) Or perhaps your question referred to the hypothetical future, if/when all toll-access journals become open-access journals, charging authors' insitutions for the peer-review service? My guess would be that unaffiliated authors are rare enough so a slush fund can cover their costs for them out of a tiny portion of the costs paid by the institutions of affiliated authors. (I don't believe this is a significant issue -- and it is in any case hypothetical, as most journals are not yet open-access.) http://www.ecs.soton.ac.uk/~harnad/Tp/resolution.htm#4.2 Stevan Harnad
