Article Processing Charges

Science and Education Publishing is an open access publisher. In an open access model, the publication costs of an article are paid from an author's research budget, or by their supporting institution, in the form of Article Processing Charges. These Article Processing Charges replace subscription charges and allow publishers to make the full-text of every published article freely available to all interested readers.

Article Processing Charges are only made if an article is accepted for publication (There are no submission fees or page charges).

The amount of article processing charges (APC) will be established in the yearly classification of the World Bank Economies of countries (i.e. Low income countries, Lower-middle-income, Upper-middle-income and High Income countries).

For Chemical Engineering and Science(ISSN 2328-7373), authors are asked to pay a fee of $600.00 per processed paper, but only if the article is accepted for publication in this journal after peer-review and possible revision of the manuscript. Note that many national and private research funding organizations and universities explicitly cover such fees for articles originated in funded research projects.

From 02/01/2015 to 08/31/2015, we offer discounts on the publication fee. The exact Article Processing Charges of SciEP journals are shown in the table below.
