Scientific Journals International

The first issue of SJI has just come out. This is an Open Access online journal open to all areas of science. Although not free for authors, the $100 fee is an order of magnitude more affordable than most other scientific Open Access journals.
SJI welcomes papers from researchers, writers and artists in all disciplines. All submissions will be sent to three reviewers with final decisions reported to the author within four weeks. If your paper is accepted for publication, you will be asked to submit the License to Publish agreement along with a processing fee of $99.95.

The copyright notice is a little strange. They claim that authors retain the copyright but then list the ways that authors may or may not use their intellectual property :)
Copyright remains yours, and you retain the right to use your own article (provided you acknowledge the published original in standard bibliographic citation form) in the following ways, as long as you do not sell it in ways which would conflict directly with our interests. You are free to use your article for the internal educational or other purposes of your own institution or company; mounted on your own or your institution's website, posted to free public servers of preprints and/or articles in your subject area or in whole or in part, as the basis for your own further publications or spoken presentations.
