What are authors paying for?

As costs are involved in every stage of the publication process, from peer-review, to copy-editing and hosting the final article on dedicated servers, the author is asked to pay an article processing charge.


When the author should pay the respective fee for publication?

Payments must be done only after final letter of acceptance of a paper to publication. You will receive an invoice with payment method.


What time period do I have within which to make the payment?

Payment is due within 30 days of receipt of original invoice. Invoices will be chased periodically and a final notice will be issued at 90 days after which the article will be placed under access control, losing its open access status and the debt will be passed to a debt collection agency.


How will you ensure that the payment of publication charges by authors has no influence on whether an article is accepted for publication in a particular journal?

All articles are treated in the same way. They go through the journal’s rigorous process of editorial consideration and peer review, thereby ensuring that the high standards the community has come to expect from the journal are maintained.
Open access papers and subscribed to papers look exactly the same to reviewers and journal editors and so they will be blind to the author’s choice, avoiding any possibility of a conflict of interest during peer review and acceptance.
