A recent survey by the (UK) Association of Learned and Professional Society
Publishers showed that a majority (about 70%, from memory) of the journals
surveyed did not insist on outright transfer of copyright; they mostly
asked for it, but would not refuse to publish a paper if the author
insisted on granting only a right of first publication.
