Authors are asked to pay an article processing charge (APC) in order for their article to be published open access under a Creative Commons License.

Article processing charges (APCs) cover the cost of publication in the journal; in recognition of the varying editorial time and effort involved in publishing different article types, from administrating peer review to copy-editing and hosting.

There are no charges for withdrawn articles, rejected articles, no initial submission charges, and also no charges based on the length of an article.
