During the first 9 days of posting to this blog, I have discussed and linked to 10 articles behind paywalls, in 10 different journals. The total cost of these articles, had I downloaded them, would have been $287.40. The prices ranged from $10.00 (an outlier) to $34.00, with an average of $28.74. I would have downloaded and read all of these articles, and perhaps reported on them here at more length, had I been able to acquire them. But the total cost is only slightly less than my total income for the same period.
The articles and prices are listed below. I plan to publish similar tables weekly.
