A case in point is SLAB magazine, produced by Slippery Rock University. I went to the site to check current contest guidelines (last year's deadline was December 8). I was astounded to find that although SLAB is a print journal, and gives no indication of having become web-only (especially since its current issue Table of Contents does not link to the works listed), there is no subscription information whatsoever. Nor is there any method on the site by which one might obtain a sample copy (I happen to have a past issue from entering a previous contest). Nor is there any indication that contributors or entrants will receive an issue, and—best of all—there is no e-mail contact provided to inquire about these details. Apparently it isn't necessary to have anyone actually read the journal anymore, even within academia—and apparently none of the contributors care that no one else will ever see their work, assuming that agitating would have rectified the situation. I look forward to the next step, when one submits only in the hope of being on a list of those found good enough to be published—if there were an actual publication.
And, of course, if nobody reads it, it doesn't matter if it's any good.
