Article Processing Charge (APC)
About the APC
- The Article Processing Charge is 590 EUR
- The APC can be covered by the authors' institution or funding body
- The APC is charged only for accepted chapters
- This charge covers the costs of: manuscript preparation, hardcopy print and delivery to your address, promotion and dissemination of your work
InTech books are published under the Open Access publishing model, which means that they are free to read by anyone, anywhere in the world.
The Publishing Fee covers the expenses entailed in producing the book. It covers the expenses of technical staff, publishing process managers, preparation of the book and finally, printing and sending you a hard copy of your book via worldwide express delivery service.
Publishing with Open Access is not without costs since the book will also be published in a printed edition with ISBN number. The processing fee also covers costs of review, corrections, preparation for print, print, postal shipment and cover design.
A highly optimized publishing workflow makes it possible for us to keep our Article Processing Charge lower than the fees charged by most other academic publishers. In comparison to other Open Access publishers, most of which require payment of an author fee of between 1,000 and 3,000 Euro, InTech's APC is affordable for both authors and institutions.
Note: This is going to be a printed book with free online access as well.
