You do not have to use a template for preparing your article submission (since the paper is finally layout via LaTeX by the production department) – but you might want to use the standard Word or LaTeX templates.

Article Processing Fees

Regarding Article Processing Fees the publisher is calling for published articles (currently 750 Euro per article): We have some sponsoring for this available – so, if your institution does not pay for APCs in Golden Open Access journals, do not hesitate to contact the Editor in Chief – We will find a way to cover the costs.
