Article-processing charges (APC)

There are many costs associated with publishing scholarly journals, such as those of managing peer review, copy editing, typesetting and online hosting. To cover these costs in the absence of journal subscriptions, authors (or their representatives) are asked to pay article processing charges (APCs). There is no submission fee.

The journal charges 10230 Japanese yen (tax included) per article page for all article types. Authors of accepted manuscripts will be invoiced for the APC before publication of their manuscript.

Color is free online; if authors request color in the print version, the fee is 35648 Japanese yen per page (tax included). More details are available in the Figures section below.

The journal publishes articles as Advance Online Publication. Authors can take up this option after acceptance for a fee of 5170 Japanese yen (tax included). More details are provided in the relevant section below and by the Editorial Office after acceptance.

In the event that the authors have not paid the APC or other relevant fees before publication, all processes for any other manuscripts associated with any authors will be suspended until full payment is confirmed by ISIJ.
