As Brian Leiter says, this needs to happen more. "All six editors and all 31 editorial board members of Lingua, one of the top journals in linguistics, last week resigned to protest Elsevier's policies on pricing and its refusal to convert the journal to an open-access publication." It's a lot easier for these established academics to take a stand than it is for young writers. And when college libraries cannot afford the journal (or in some cases to even find out how much it costs) it's clear that the time to take a stand is now.
