Author Fees revised

2016-01-05

If a paper is accepted for publication, you will be asked to pay an Article Processing Charge (APC) to cover part of our expenses including those of journal production (copy editing, proof reading, layout preparation, etc), indexing, DOI numbering, online hosting, etc. The APC for all papers accepted from January 2016 is as follows, plus VAT or local taxes where applicable:

£70 (UK)
€95 (Europe)
CN¥660 (China)
₹1500 (India)
$100 (The Americas and RoW) 

Upon submission of an original research paper, authors will be asked to confirm that they take responsibility for payment of the APC. By paying this fee authors are permitted to post the final, published, PDF of their article on a website, blogs, academic or social media sites, institutional repository or other free public server immediately on publication. Contact us if you have any query.
