Dear Colleagues and Researchers,

Generally, we all get the request from journals to review the scientific articles for them. Most of us do it for free and with pleasure. After review when these articles got published the journals charges a hefty amount for its access to institutions, or individuals. The open access journals are charging the authors a good amount for its publications. By this way, the owners of journals are becoming rich, and therefore these days its floods for the new journal and it's becoming a good business. Even if it’s a business for them they use our scientific services (which is very important for any journals) for free. I strongly object such practice of doing business with our scientific knowledge, and I disagree to be used by them.

If you agree with me, please sign this petition and stop doing a review for free.
