Article processing charges

All articles published in our journals are open access and freely available online, immediately upon publication. This is made possible by an article-processing charge (APC) that covers the range of publishing services we provide. This includes a provision of online tools for editors and authors, article production and hosting, liaison with abstracting and indexing services, and customer services. 

With an article-processing charge (APC) which is considered sufficient, then we do not ask the author to pay an article submission charge (APC).

The APC, payable when your manuscript is editorially accepted and before publication, is charged to either you or your funder, institution or employer.

As the corresponding author of the manuscript, you are responsible for making or arranging the payment (for instance, via your institution) upon editorial acceptance of the manuscript.


At which stage is the amount I will need to pay fixed?

The APC payable for an article is agreed as part of the manuscript submission process. The agreed charge will not change, regardless of any change to the journal’s APC.


When and how do I pay?

Upon editorial acceptance of an article, the corresponding author (you) will be notified that payment is due. You need to arrange payment unless a waiver has been granted, or your institution or employer is covering the cost.

We do not consider individual waiver requests on a case-by-case basis or in cases of lack of funds. This is because we think we charged fees for authors fairly cheap to be met.
 

What are funding sources available?

Many funding agencies allow the use of grants to cover APCs. An increasing number of funders and agencies strongly encourage open access publication.
