Article-processing charges (APC)

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 (APC). These APC replace subscription charges and allow publishers to make the full text of every published article freely available to all interested readers. In addition, authors who publish in our open access journals retain the copyright of their work, which is released under a “Creative Commons Attribution License (CC BY-NC 3.0)” enabling the unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction of an article in any medium, provided that the original work is properly cited.
