An additional means has been discussed at the Bonn University.
We know that discontinuing the receipt of those high priced
journals is not a way to force lower fees, because you exclude
yourself from the information. Thus, another way discussed
was not to act as referee for such journals/publishers.
Whether this is really a feasible way, I don't know.
But nevertheless I wanted to add this point for discussion.
