Elsevier's APC pricing are established each journal; fees range from c $150 to c $9,900 US dollars, excluding tax, and are prominently published on our APC price list and on journal homepages. These are the only two ways we can provide a fee for your publication.
You should also be aware that in many cases authors will receive discounts on these prices if they submit to several of Elsevier's journals. The more papers an author submits, the larger the discount. For example, an author could submit their paper to 10 different journals and receive 10% off each paper they submit.
This means that the cost per paper for authors who submit multiple papers is significantly lower than what it appears at first glance. For example, an author submitting five papers would receive a 50% discount on each paper they submitted (i.e., $15,000 instead of $30,000).
Authors may also be eligible for further discounts if they meet certain criteria. For example, an author might be able to obtain a 15% discount if they submit their paper within a specific time period after its initial acceptance.
Finally, authors may be eligible for additional discounts if they include their contact information on the Disclosures page of their manuscript.
These payments, which are levied by certain open access journals after acceptance, are known as author publication charges or article processing charges (APCs) and range from $8 to $3,900. They are not required by law but rather determined by the journal's owner. The fees cover the administrative costs of publishing an article: printing pages, mailing subscriptions, etc.
For most articles that come out in peer-reviewed journals, authors will be asked to pay an up-front fee to have their work published. If they can't afford this fee, then they will be asked to submit their work elsewhere or not publish at all. However, some publishers may offer financial assistance to authors who cannot afford to pay their publication fees. In these cases, the publisher should be identified during the submission process.
The amount charged for a publication varies depending on the type of paper being considered for publication. For example, a review article would likely carry a higher charge than a research study or perspective piece. There are also subtypes within each category that could affect price. For example, an open access article published in a journal with a subscription model will still have a publication charge because it requires the payment of money to publish the paper. An open access article published in a journal without any form of payment will not include a publication charge.
Certain traditional journals charge each page (typically $100–250 each) and/or every color figure (about $150–1,000 apiece) to pay the expense of publishing, particularly color printing. Supplementary documents may also carry a fixed price or a charge per item or page in exceptional situations, with fees often ranging from $150 to $500. Some journals offer reduced prices for academic authors.
In recent years, open-access journals have become more common. These journals make their content freely available online and typically require readers to pay a publication fee to access the articles. The costs of production are usually covered by grants or donations, so that there are no additional charges for readers. In addition, some open-access journals offer special discounts to institutions that cannot afford normal prices. Research institutions can then make the articles free for students to read.
Academic journals play an important role in the field of science by keeping researchers up to date on what is happening in their fields. They allow scientists to communicate new findings quickly across large distances, allowing them to build on one another's work. And because they are published, others can cite these articles in future studies or presentations helping to advance science as a whole.
Journal prices vary depending on how old the journal is, how long it has been published, and other factors. Older journals tend to be cheaper because they are less expensive to produce. More recently published journals tend to be more expensive because they require newer technology and more staff time to manage.
Specific details can be found in the guidelines provided by the individual article author. The article processing fee for IEEE Access is US $1,750. All new topical journals opening in 2020 will have an article processing fee of US $1,750. Older journals have different fees based on their list price.
The APC allows authors to choose between paying up front or through their institutions. If paid upfront, the fee must be paid within 14 days of acceptance. If paid through institutions, the payment needs to come from one of those institutions. Institutions have 30 days to pay the fee or they will lose access to the articles. Authors who need an extension should contact the editors directly.
For a single author, the publishing price for the online monthly magazine is Rs. 1750, and for several authors, the charge is Rs. 2150. Accepted papers in print journals (quarterly publishing) have a publication cost of Rs. 3000 + Rs. 500 for each co-author. The subscription fee is also around Rs. 3000.
The average pay scale in India is $ 20,000 - $ 30,000. However, there are many research institutions in India who would be willing to accept donations from researchers wishing to publish their work. These organizations include universities, government agencies, etc. The amount you receive will depend on the institution you are submitting your work to. Usually, they offer a subsidy for published articles.
Copyright fees vary from case to case. If you are the original writer of the article, then you can write "© Author's name" at the beginning of the article. Otherwise, use the Creative Commons license or any other available license that suits your needs.
Submission guidelines vary from journal to journal. Check with the journal's website for details on how to submit your paper. Typically, submissions are invited through an editor-in-chief or associate editor. Sometimes, reviewers are also asked to review manuscripts. They will evaluate the paper and if it is accepted, they will send feedback to the authors.
