My avatar was a scientific result that was later found to be 'mistaken' - I rarely claim to be 100% correct
ETA 5/8/20: I've been advised that the result was correct, it was the initial interpretation that needed to be withdrawn
Meta? I'd say so!

Nice one.

the AAAS has open access on all their coronavirus publications. I actually am a member, because annual membership costs a similar amount to a subscription to New Scientist, but you get Science magazine (and a few other titbits) instead.
Have you considered stupidity as an explanation

The AAS calculates article publication charges using an approach that counts “digital quanta,” units of information in digital form that the author supplies. Digital quanta can include words, figures, tables, data components, and figures within a figure set.

As of 1 January 2022, article publication charges will be assessed to authors according to the tiered rate structure below, with the tiers set by the number of quanta in the publication. The following table applies to AJ, ApJ, ApJS, and ApJL; the PSJ will maintain its own, separate rate structure.

ApJ, ApJS and AJ
Tier 1 ≤ 30 quanta $1,149
Tier 2 31–50 quanta $2,599
Tier 3 51–100 quanta $4,499
Long-article surcharge > 100 quanta $250
ApJL (rates include $450 handling fee)
ApJL Tier 1 ≤ 40 quanta $2,400
ApJL Long-article surcharge > 40 quanta $400
molto tricky

This week it's more about them planning an entirely in person conference for next week, which is usually the biggest astronomy meeting anywhere. And with no backup plans to go virtual.

Obviously the whole thing is now cancelled. It's usually the main way that grad students and post-docs get to present work and shop around for jobs.
