Have any state-funded universities run into policy issues by hosting journals on state equipment that generate income for a scholarly association, or pay honorariums to their editors, who work at the university? In general, in Louisiana, faculty members who receive payment for work from someone other than their university cannot use state equipment to do the work. I’m looking for examples to make a case for hosting scholarly journals, even if a faculty member receives compensation for editing it. I’d like to hear from others who are doing this, even if there were no policy problems.
This could extend to journals that pay author honorariums, charge subscriptions that fund a society, etc.
