Watch where you donate your time

I just declined to referee an article because I was too busy and because the journal was TA and I only referee for OA journals.

But after I clicked "send" on my reply, I realized that I have a third reason not to referee for certain publishers, and it would apply even if I were willing to referee for TA journals.

If you feel the same way, please go public with your decision. Here are the publishers belonging to the AAP, <>.
