... er, sorry? It's called copyright, you know, and it's the basic way journals like JIES survive and publish.
By the way, I have no personal interest whatsoever in copyright preservation, as I'm not earning a single cent when JIES sells a copy. I'm just trying to play by the rules I implicitly accepted when I decided to try and publish my article with a mainstream journal.
To be honest, I have an obvious conflict of interest here: on the one hand, I would prefer to have my article freely available to anyone, in order to maximize its circulation; on the other hand, I feel obliged to play fair to the publisher and follow the legal obligations that regulate copyright.
Anyway, for every practical purpose, my article is still out there for anyone to look at, as far as I know,

However, there're some reare cases of Basque /r/ arising from gemination of /R/, as in larre 'meadow; heath; uncultivated land, desert', a loanword from Celtic (Gaulish) *landa: 'heath, moor' > *lanna > larra > larre.

But _landa_ 'campo, pieza de terreno' occurs widely in Basque (Bisc., Guip., Aezc., Lab., High & Low Nav., Ronc.) and appears to continue Gaul. *landa: directly.
>I think this is from a different Celtic word *landa: '(enclosed) field, plot of land', homonymous to Gaulish *landa: 'heath', Cornish lan, Breton lann 'heath, steppe', which would require a Celtic protoform *Flanda: (cfr. Gascon branda, brana 'heath'). Unfortunately, Celtic specialists conflated both.
