Article processing charges (APCs)
This is an open access journal in which all research articles are published as Gold Open Access under a Creative Commons licence. Authors of non-research articles have options to make their articles open access if they choose, but by default non-research articles are not published Gold Open Access and no fee is required.
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. However multiple other routes to funding Gold OA, including institutional agreements and APC waivers and discounts, are available to authors in order to ensure that every author can publish in this journal. Please see this journal's open access options for full details.
Please see the table below for this journal’s APC fees.
