Fees and pricing

This page contains information about fees that may be incurred when you publish in this journal.

Predatory publishers

We are aware that some companies claim to work with Cambridge University Press journals to guarantee publication, or to provide publishing services on our behalf for a fee. The only companies we work with to provide publishing services will be listed on Cambridge Core pages, and submissions to Cambridge University Press journals can only be made via the online peer review systems linked to from this Cambridge Core website, or else directly to the editorial offices of those journals. If you have any doubts and for more information on predatory publishing, please visit the Think Check Submit website.

To submit a paper, click on the ‘Submit your article’ button at the top of this page and follow the instructions. For information about language editing services please see this page.

Article processing charges (APCs)

This is a hybrid journal, which means it provides authors with options to make their articles open access, including the option to publish Gold Open Access under a Creative Commons licence. In many cases Gold Open Access articles are supported by an article processing charge (APC), typically paid by the corresponding author’s funding body or institution. Cambridge University Press has also made a number of agreements to support open access, which may cover all or part of the costs associated with Gold Open Access for authors at participating institutions. Please see this journal's open access options for full details.

For articles that are not published Gold Open Access, no fee is required.

Please see the table below for this journal’s APC fees.
