How much are you willing to bribe to get your paper published

Being an editor is not a great job. I spent at least a day a week on the job and never received any official financial compensation.

I did find, however, that people were willing to offer me large bribes to get their papers published — often upwards of $50,000 per paper. So I made a pretty good living off the corruption. I will miss the extra income.
