Publication Fee

As an open access publisher, Applis journals are committed to ensuring permanent and universal free access to all published articles, unlike closed-access journals which limit their readership to those able to pay subscription fees. This means that Applis Publisher does not receive any income from either subscriptions or article views/downloads. The current publication fee in all Applis journals is $650 for all research and review articles and with lower fees for case Reports and communications, which are both $550.
Authors are asked to pay APC’s upon acceptance of their article. These charges are used to finance the whole publication and archiving process, including peer review, editing, proof-reading and copy-editing, and hosting and maintenance.

Publication Fee:

Research and Review articles – $650
Case Reports and Communications – $550

Waiver Policy

We offer a partial fee waiver for individual authors or author groups affiliated with a university or institute in Low-income economies as defined by the World Bank. Waiver requests during or after peer-review will not be considered. Requests will be assessed on a case-by-case basis and may be granted in cases of genuine need. Due to the numerous costs associated to open access publishing, all Applis Journals can only accept to process a limited number of waived submissions per issue.
Please mail your request for a waiver of the publication fee to before submitting your manuscript. Requests for waivers for manuscripts that are already under peer review or have been typeset will not be granted.
Color illustrations are free of charge, just as supplemental material.
The author’s university or institution may cover the publication costs for articles resulting from research undertaken at the university or institution.
