EAL = enhanced access license.

Oxymoron = a figure of speech by which a locution produces an
incongruous, seemingly self-contradictory effect (Compliments of

thanks for standing up to them. I know it's hard, it's really painful,
but someone has to start. I don't have any online journals from Wiley
except Cancer and, the Blackwell titles, which of course are no longer
any good because of Wiley's lack of foresight in honoring their
agreement to keep Blackwell titles as is. If they pull that on me with
Cancer, then I will not hesitate to cancel.

I do have a question: what does EAL stand for?

God bless
