Article Processing Charges

Regarding Article Processing Charges (APCs) 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.

See for more information on APCs and waivers available.
