    Now, how can journals fund the peer-review process and still have research freely available?

That money generally doesn't come directly from the university, but from the US or some other state's government. Why the researchers or university are then the legal owners of that publicly funded research, and have the rights to transfer that ownership to private enterprises like Elsevier, is beyond me.
