Article Processing Charges

Why does SCIRP charge publication fees from authors?
All original research papers published by Scientific Research Publishing (SCIRP) are made freely and permanently accessible online immediately upon publication. We guarantee that no university library or individual reader will ever have to buy a subscription or pay any pay-per-view fees to access articles in the electronic version of any journal. There is hence no revenue at SCIRP from the sale of subscriptions to the electronic version or from pay-per-view fees. Yet, the online publication process does involve costs including those pertaining to setup and maintenance of the publication infrastructure, routine operation of the journal, processing of manuscripts through peer-reviews, editing, publishing, maintaining the scholarly record, and archiving. To cover these costs, SCIRP charges publication fees (also called Article Process Charges, henceforth APC) from authors and subscription charges only for its printed version. APC are due when a manuscript has been accepted for publication.

SCIRP does not request Article Submission Charges, also called Submission Fees. These are due at the time of submission of the manuscript. Nor does SCIRP charge per page or for color figures or for any other items for which other publishers are known to charge.

Please note that SCIRP's regular APC are well below average. All the while, SCIRP never ceases to seek to improve the quality guaranteed to its authors and its readers in all kinds of ways, including 1) generating article level metrics, 2) generating journal metrics, e.g., by calculating a 2-year Google-based Journal Impact Factor (2-GJIF), and 3) archiving all articles at Portico. Authors should also keep in mind the cost effectiveness, or value for money, of publishing Open Access. SCIRP thinks it would score well on cost effectiveness. But more research needs to be done on the matter.
