Article processing charges

ATSIP use article processing charges (APCs) to contribute to the costs of publishing. APCs are typically paid by an author's institution or funding body once an article is accepted. There are no submission charges or other charges.

The current APC in ATSIP is:

  • UK £1000
  • USA $1250 

Value Added Tax (VAT) and local sales tax is added, when applicable.

Authors from countries that have done individual deals with Cambridge University Press, e.g. The Netherlands, may be eligible for a 100% waiver of their APC. For more information on these deals and find out whether you are eligible, please click here.

We provide waivers for authors from eligible low and middle-income countries. According to the list provided by the WHO, a 100% waiver is available to authors from group A countries. A 50% waiver is available to authors from group B countries.

The decision whether to accept a paper for publication will rest solely with the Editors, and without reference to the funding situation of the authors.

Please note: APC collection is managed by RightsLink, who will contact authors following acceptance of their paper. For more detail on the payment process, visit our Production FAQs.
