$10,000 for a Journal about Libraries?

"Peter Scott notes that Emerald is offering free access to Library Management this week.

In case you didn't know, this "9 times a year" journal (when they don't combine issues) costs a cool $10,784. I believe it's by far the most expensive serial within librarianship.
I always wondered what could possibly justify that price.

I've taken a look and can only suggest that the curious look for yourselves. It's not hard; a year runs to 450 pages or so. Any comment from me would come off as mean-spirited."
