Article processing charges (APCs) fund all standard services for authors, including but not limited to running peer-review systems, copyediting and typesetting, hosting the article in perpetuity on dedicated servers and marketing.

During the submission process, the corresponding author is asked to confirm his or her awareness of the applicable APC: if confirmation is not received the submission process cannot be completed.  After acceptance for publication authors are charged the article processing charge (APC) quoted during paper submission.  There are no additional compulsory fees based on word count, use of color figures, or other factors, and no fees charged upon submission.

Because decisions to accept papers for publication result in an APC payment we maintain a rigid division between editorial decisions, made by an editorial decision-maker (the Editor–in-Chief, Deputy Editor-in-Chief, or an Associate Editor), and business decisions made by the publisher. 


Under no circumstances does the publisher make editorial decisions and editorial decision makers receive no incentives from the publisher to accept papers for publication.  Publication of poor quality papers can significantly harm a journal’s reputation and compromise its ability to attract papers: it is never in the interests of editorial decision-makers or the publisher to compromise editorial standards.

In many cases APCs may be provided by funding agencies.  APC payment may be made by credit card. Invoices contain further information on how to pay.  Invoices contain a secure credit card payment gateway URL: do not send credit card details by any other method.  If your funding agency requires a CC-BY license, rather than the default CC-BY-NC, please note this on the license form received during the proof stage.

Discounts for authors working in developing countries: Where available these are offered automatically upon submission.  Authors must confirm acceptance before further processing.

Full waivers: To request a fee waiver an application must be completed.  Waivers are not available prior to manuscript submission and must be requested following manuscript acceptance.


Letters to the Editor: A fee waiver or discount may apply in accordance with the guidelines given for the letter to the editor manuscript type here.


Terms and Conditions for Discounts and Waivers

- Authors should apply for discounts and waivers following manuscript acceptance except for developing country discounts, which are offered upon submission.  

- All applications are subject to approval by the publisher. Waivers are provided at the sole discretion of the publisher.

- Discounts or waivers may not be transferred to a different author, submission, or journal.

- Discounts may not be combined and where multiple discounts are available the one most favorable to the author will apply.
