There are plenty of journals which do not charge page charges, or which
are willing to waive them for authors with no access to funds (or which
publish the paper even if you bin their invoices). After over 20 papers, I
have NEVER paid page charges anywhere.

As to reprint costs, these are indeed a problem (depending on journal).
Many European journals offer 20-50 free reprints. Failing that, there is
always the photocopier...
