„Since we’re discussing fees, I’ll mention that we stopped charging reproduction and permission fees several years ago. Researchers still need our permission to publish, but instead of charging a permissions fee, we now gently ask for a contribution every time we provide an image or grant a permission. The time-consuming paperwork for tracking fee requests is a hassle we no longer have, and we make as much if not more in contributions than we did in fees.
