Description/Abstract

The refereed journal literature needs to be freed from both paper and its costs, but not from peer review, whose "invisible hand" is what maintains its quality. The residual cost of online-only peer review is low enough to be recovered from author-end page charges, covered from institutional subscription savings, thereby vouchsafing a toll-free literature for everyone forever.
