Applied Organic Chemistry Journal have article-processing charges (APCs)?

Publishing is not without costs. Applied Organic Chemistry Journal defray those costs from article-processing charges (APCs), because it does not have subscription charges for its research content, believing instead that immediate, world-wide, barrier-free, to the full text of research articles is in the best interests of the scientific community. Like most other serious publishers, Applied Organic Chemistry Journal maintains its high quality of service through an ‘author-pay’ model. As such, manuscripts that are accepted for publication following peer review incur a publishing fee.

Can I avoid paying article-processing charges (APCs)?

No, all authors have to pay the charges for publishing their articles. However, authors are considered for waiver or discounts only after encountering a genuine reason.

What do the article-processing charges pay for?

  • Immediate world-wide barrier-free open access to the full text
  • Developing and maintaining electronic tools for peer review and publication
  • Preparation in various formats for online publication
  • Securing full text inclusion in a number of permanent archives

To which articles will this charge apply?

To all articles that have been accepted for publication in one of IMedPub LTD online journals with the exception of articles submitted for publication in supplements.

Who is responsible for making the payment?

Whoever submits the manuscript is responsible for making or arranging the payment (for instance, via his or her institution). The submitting author must confirm, at the time of submission, that they will organize payment should the article be accepted for publication.

How do I pay?

You will need to arrange payment of the APC unless a waiver has been granted, or your institution has covered the cost through a membership scheme. Following peer review, once a manuscript has received editorial acceptance in principle, the article processing charge becomes payable, and formatting checks on the manuscript will commence. Once formatting checks are completed, and payment of the article processing charge has been received, the article will be published.

Prompt payment is advised, payment can be made via PayPal, online payment or bank transfer.

Article withdrawal policy

An author possesses all the rights to withdraw the manuscript after submitting it.
There will be no charge, as long as it is withdrawn within 7 days of its initial submission.
