Publication Fees

The charge

As an Open Access title, publishing an article in this journal requires an Article Publication Charge that will be billed to the submitting author following acceptance. Apart from this Article Processing Charge there are no other fees (for example submission charges, page charges, or color charges). 

Authors living in developing countries: We encourage our authors to publish their papers with us and don’t wish the cost of article publishing charge to be an insurmountable barrier especially to authors from the low and lower middle income countries. A range of discounts or waivers are offered to authors who are unable to pay our article publishing charges. These are dependent on current availability of funds for fee waivers. We use the World Bank Country Classification table to identify:

  • Low income countries. Contact authors whose primary affiliation is in these countries will be eligible for up to a 100% waiver of the standard article publishing charge;
  • Lower middle income. Contact authors whose primary affiliation is in these countries will be eligible for a 100% waiver of the standard article publishing charge.
